One of the major problems at animal shelters is limited space. When a shelter is at capacity, fosters help by bringing some of the animals to their homes for a short/extended time.
The majority of animals in foster homes are animals with special needs. For example, kittens and nursing mothers are always better in a home environment as it is much quieter and roomier. There is also a smaller chance of infection or sickness in one’s home as compared to a shelter. Also, cats and dogs who require special attention do better in foster care; examples include animal that are sick, recovering from surgery, aggression/behavior issues or simply “NO MORE ROOM” at the shelter.
Please foster a shelter dog or cat. Submit a Foster a Pet application from our volunteer hosted website ccacvolunteers.webs.com
S/N Sponsor Program
Each month, generous sponsors donate to spay/neuter dogs that have special needs or have been at the shelter the longest. The dogs are spay/neuter before adoption and a $35 adoption fee gets the dogs adopted quickly. Adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, rabies vaccine, and microchip.
If you wish to participate in the S/N Sponsor Program, please contact Tammy our Rescue Coordinator. She knows which dogs have been at the shelter the longest or have the most urgent/special needs: firstname.lastname@example.org
Schedule a shelter tour for the kids to deliver the gifts and to play with our dogs and cats under an ACO supervision.
