By Bethe Almeras, WHS Adoptions Volunteer & Foster Human
Bethe: What made you decide to foster, and how did you get connected with Washington Humane Society (WHS)?
Kat: A couple years ago, before I moved to DC, I discovered fostering while looking at my local animal shelter’s website. My cat had just died (Luna was the best cat ever!), and I wasn’t ready to adopt, but I knew someone that had found a cat, and I looked into fostering it (it ended up adopted).
I knew as soon as I got settled into my own place again, I wanted to become a foster as I am still not ready to adopt. Once I moved to DC, I found the Washington Humane Society and began the volunteer orientation process.
