Stephanie (Steph) joined the KHS foster team in August 2022 (the height of kitten season!) and wasted no time tagging in to help wherever needed. When asked why she started fostering, Steph said, "I’ve always loved animals. Since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to work with animals in some way. So it seemed right that I become a foster."

Within a few short months, Steph has already played a key role in so many animals' lives - frequently tagging into foster bottle baby kittens overnight or long-term, helping kittens through difficult medical situations, and so much more. Fostering isn't always easy but Steph finds ways to stay motivated, "What keeps me motivated as a foster is just loving these little ones as my own. Each foster is different with different needs. When they've grown and graduated from being a foster, it’s always bittersweet. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that they find their forever homes and makes it all worth it."
