Animal Shelters Offering Foster Programs during Holidays
Animal shelters across the country are teaming up with online pet adoption service Petfinder.com to offer foster programs during the holidays. Fostering enables fosters and prospective pet owners to check whether they have the ability to care for pets.
Animal shelters across the country are offering foster programs during the holidays in partnership with online pet adoption service Petfinder.com.
The foster program has been promoted on television with help from CBS, which aired the film “A Dog Named Christmas” to encourage families to foster pets from shelters during the holidays. The idea of fostering pets during the holidays took hold in Pensacola, Florida when a nurse at an animal clinic posted a sign for fostering and got an overwhelming response.
Fostering can benefit shelters, pet fosters and the pets. The shelters would have time to make their general cleaning, improvements in their shelters or to simply have time off before they will again be tied to caring for pets when the pets are returned.
