The Greenbrier County Humane Society is excited to announce the start of a foster program. We are looking for foster homes that can provide a temporary place for a shelter pet to call home until they are adopted.
Never fostered before? Not to worry! GHS will work alongside you every step of the way to ensure both you and your foster pet have a successful experience. Foster pets will receive medical care and pet supplies from GHS.
“You already do so much to help homeless pets and we are so grateful for your compassion and kindness,” says GHS. “If you have ever longed for a way to directly help cats and dogs, fostering is a great way to get involved. Come see us at the facility for a foster application!”
Why do some animals need foster care?
• Some animals don’t do well in a shelter environment because they are frightened or need a little extra care.
• Newborn animals that need to be nursed or bottle-fed usually need foster care.
• Some animals need time to recover from an illness or injury before adoption.
Whatever the reason, these animals need some extra love and care until they are adopted. Providing foster care for a few days, weeks, or months can be a lifesaving gift for an animal.
