For those interested in becoming foster volunteers for kittens, puppies and animals with injuries, the Wisconsin Humane Society will host an open house from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Aug. 2 at its Racine campus, 2706 Chicory Rd.

“Baby kittens, puppies and animals with injuries or illness heal remarkably faster in a home environment,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS. “It’s easier than most people think, and fostering is such a rewarding experience.”

Interested people with other animals at home are encouraged to bring current vaccination records for their animals, which is a requirement to become a foster parent.

For more information about fostering animals, visit the volunteer section of the wihumane.org website.
