Foster Program & Re-Homing Animals
Foster program for homeless animals. BHS does not keep any animals at our building. All our animals are kept in foster homes.
BHS makes every effort to find foster care for homeless and stray animals. We also try to help take in animals needing training or other assistance from the shelter. Volunteers are always needed to help with this need.
We work with people who are looking for a new home for their animal by asking them to be a temporary foster home, these essential Caregivers keep the animal and work with us to find a home. We also work in this same capacity with people who have litters of puppies and kittens for adoption. We require the mother to be spayed for these litters to be supported.
Any of our foster animals can be shown at the monthly Adoption Day and are available for adoption between the monthly events via phone calls or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shot clinic for Foster Animals and Healthy Pet Campaign animals ONLY is every Wednesday night from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the BHS building. BHS Does Not offer booster shots or shots to animals without spay & neuter services. The Bannock Humane Society Does Not provide rabies shots. Booster shots and rabies vaccinations must be provided by your veterinarian.
Food distribution of donated pet food to those in need, as it is available. We require animals getting assistance to be spayed & neutered. People may make donations of pet food and those in need may pick up pet food on the 3rd Wednesday of the month between 6:30 – 7:00 p.m.
