Take the First Step

Thank you for considering this very important and meaningful volunteer position! Fostering not only saves lives, but it can be a wonderful way to involve the whole family in service to the Shelter.

When you foster an animal, you not only give them a chance to get out of the shelter, it’s also at no additional cost to you! ACSKC will cover the cost of their food, litter, and—for the ones that need it—medicine. Volunteering a bit of time and space is all it takes to make a difference.

Please complete our Foster Application below and someone will be in touch with you soon. You may also download the form HERE, then email it to info@kenthumane.org. Or, print and mail in the completed form to: 10720 Augustine Herman Hwy, Chestertown, MD 21620

***Please note that the fosters we need most are for kittens, and there are many different types of Kitten Fosters. With the exception of the animals who require long-term medical care, we do not foster dogs or cats who could otherwise be adopted. Any animal that is eligible for fostering will have it stated in their bio.

Failure to provide complete information may result in delays in processing or denial.
