Just as foster homes are needed for children, local animal shelters need temporary homes for pets.
Foster homes provide a nurturing environment for animals that might be too young for adoption, need time to heal from a medical procedure, or could benefit from socialization in a home environment. It’s a good option for volunteers who want to help, but aren’t yet ready for the full-time commitment of a new pet.
At SPCA Tampa Bay, foster parents care for approximately 1,400 animals each year. The agency is always looking for more foster families – especially those willing to take puppies.
