Foster Homes Needed

The Humane Society of the Flint Hills (HSFH) is seeking residents of Lyon County that are interested in fostering Shelter animals on a temporary basis.


Animals need foster homes for various reasons: kittens and puppies (with or without a mother) that are under 8 weeks of age, cats and dogs recovering from illnesses or injuries, or displaced dogs and cats needing a temporary home. Animals are vaccinated prior to being placed in your home.


As a foster home, your requirements are simple. You will need to provide a safe, clean environment, food and supplies, and lots of tender loving care. Your assistance with a foster animal will help give the animal a second chance at finding a permanent home.


If you have questions about fostering an animal, please call the HSFH office at 620-342-4477.

Linked below is the Foster application, please fill it out and either email it to or send by physical mail to PO Box 845 Emporia, KS 66801.
