Pet Adoption | Fostering Saves Lives

Short-term foster homes are desperately needed here in Aransas County. Kitty Foster Laura B has found her experiences so fulfilling and heartwarming, that she wanted to share with the community. 

You probably have several reasons you think you CAN'T foster (I did), but consider the following:

"I would keep them all." The GOAL of fostering is to say goodbye, to get them ready to be adopted into a forever home. Tough love ahead: you may be sad, but isn’t it worth a little sadness to save an animal from euthanization?

"I don't have time." You really just need time to provide for their basic needs, and spend a little time each day socializing them, loving on them, and playing with them. A little bit of your time can make a world of difference.

"I don't have room." If you have a spare bathroom, bedroom, or office space, you have room. If you don't have other pets, it's even easier! They just need a little space to move around and get used to living in a home with people who care for them.

I thought it was going to be hard - and in a lot of ways, I was right, but it’s worth it. So far, I've fostered 9 kittens, and with each tearful goodbye, I know I've saved a life
