Welcome to another edition of Furry Fridays! We have to make note that our pet last week Harley was adopted!!! He has found his forever home and I am so so happy for that. That is our goal every single week to find good loving homes for these animals to stay forever! Sometimes, there are animals that may need a little extra TLC during their time at the Humane Society! The Humane Society has a lot of different opportunities to foster animals if that is something that you think you could provide! I asked Karen from the Humane Society to share more about the foster program!
NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
As a private nonprofit the Kokomo Humane Society is both enormously dependent on and eternally grateful to our growing team of volunteers. Since we moved to the new facility we have seen a considerable increase in new volunteers There many ways that volunteers can make an impact in our organization, one being through participation in our foster program. Being a Foster entails caring for an animal that would do better in a home environment than in the shelter setting, Examples would include an injured or scared animal, a new Mama with a litter of puppies or kittens, or underage orphaned babies. Fostering is an extremely fulfilling experience and a huge help to the foster animals and the Humane Society itself. Kitten season is upon us and we always need numerous fosters to help get kittens to the age where we can find them forever homes. We provide foster families with everything they need to host the fosters such as food, litter, pet milk, bedding or a crate. If you are interested please call our Outreach Coordinator Eddie at (765) 452-4224 for more information on how you can become involved.
Our adoptable pet this week is a long time resident of the Humane Society. Her name is Gilsea a 2 and a half year old long haired grey female cat. She is front declawed and has been with us since September 27, 2018. Gilsea got sick shortly after she came to us and has had a long road back to recovery. She is healthy now and ready to finally find a forever home. Gilsea does alright in the cat colony but she would prefer a quieter atmosphere. She might be alright with another calm cat but a dog free home would be best. She is a beautiful lady who will enjoy being pampered inside as being declawed will prohibit her from going outside. Her adoption fee is $30 which includes her spay surgery, vaccines and microchip. She will also get a certificate for a free wellness exam when she is adopted.
