Now Taking Emergency Fosters!

PHS is looking for people with serious interest in helping house homeless animals at our shelter during the COVID-19 outbreak. This will enable us to keep space available for animals most in need. Please fill out the foster form and email it in to

Initial foster fees waived. A valid ID and credit card will be kept on file during the foster period. Fosters may be long term depending on how long a Shelter in Place Quarantine may last. This is the best way to ensure continuity of care for our shelter animals as of right now. A call will be made to all available foster when needed and curbside pick up will be arranged. 

Again, we thank everyone for their help during this difficult time.

Any questions can be asked online by email or call 308-635-0922

PHS offers a foster-to-adopt option for all potential dog adopters. In order to foster-to-adopt a pet, we require an approved adoption application, a $50.00 deposit as well as a completed Foster Application Form. You will sign a brief Foster Contract that explains your responsibilities during the foster period. Upon completion, potential adopters will be able to take a dog they are interested home for seven days to "test the water" with their new pet. All dogs will be spayed/neutered before they can leave the shelter on foster.

Some animals behave differently once they are out of the shelter environment. This option allows foster applicants to see how a certain dog reacts to their home environment. If, for any reason, the foster does not work out, the foster applicant can get their deposit back upon return of the animal. The $50.00 deposit can also be applied to the adoption fee if the applicant decides to adopt their chosen new fur-baby.
