Foster Families Needed for Dogs in COVID-19 Response

Would you consider a temporary, furry roommate? The COVID-19 crisis continues, and while we remain open to adoptions by appointment on Monday, March 23, we must prepare for whatever happens next. Right now, WHS had about 14 shelter dogs who are in need of emergency foster homes. We do not have any cats or needs in need of foster at this time.

We are asking for foster families with no other pets and no young children—teens are fine. WHS provides the pet food, supplies, ongoing support, and medical care. You provide the love and a safe home. Given the unpredictable nature of COVID-19, we cannot yet estimate how long these foster placements will last, but we ask potential foster families to be willing to commit to at least 2-3 weeks.

If you can open your heart and your home as a foster parent to one of these pups, we’d like to hear from you. Please head to our Adoption Questionnaire form (link below), and in the “Other Comments or Requests” box, tell us that you’d like to foster. Our Adoptions and Foster team will be matching dogs based on the best household fit, so we cannot guarantee you’ll be able to foster a specific dog.
