Kennel cough was really common when I used to volunteer at our local humane society. Cats cannot get it, but from what I understand it’s easy to pass amongst dogs. Is the organization you’re fostering through paying vet bills? I would try to seperate him from your other dog until you can get him to the vet I think. Totally not an expert on this one, maybe someone else will have better advice!

I would separate him from your other pooch immediately and call the vet and see if they think you should bring him in.

Try to get in contact with the shelter.  Most of the time they have a vet that they use and you’ll need their information to know what vaccinations they’ve received.  Is your dog vaccinated against kennel cough?  Most are, but you may want to call your vet and make sure and let her know the situation to see if they’re concerened.  We’ve fostered puppies and a couple older dogs, some of them sick ones and nothing has ever transfered to our two dogs since they’re kept up to date on their shots.
