Karnes County Humane Organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer group looking for foster homes in the Karnes County area to help rescue dogs/puppies from high-kill shelters. The fostering commitment varies, from 1-2 weeks to long-term, with all supplies (food, kennels, medical care, etc) being provided by KCHO. A foster home provides a temporary safe place that frees up space at the municipal shelter so that euthanization for space is not required.
Some types of fostering opportunities we have include:
Puppies too young for the shelter environment
Dogs recovering from illness or injury
Hospice foster (providing a loving home for an older dog to live out his/her golden years)
Short term fostering for dogs awaiting transport to rescue organizations
KCHO is NOT an animal shelter. We are an all-volunteer group that coordinates vetting, fundraising and transport for the City of Kenedy, Karnes City and other Karnes County abandoned pets. Having qualified foster families is critical to our success, allowing us to get dogs out of the local high-kill municipal shelters while they await transport and rescue. To become a foster, you will need to complete our Foster Application(PDF) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can complete the foster application online. You can also call 830-583-0660 for more information.
