Sometimes, animals aren’t yet ready for our adoption program, like puppies or kittens under eight weeks old. Sometimes, animals get sick or injured and need special care. And other times, our shelter is simply filled to capacity. That’s when our Foster Care program volunteers swoop in to save the day.
We receive a dog or cat that, for some reason, can’t be immediately placed up for adoption. The call goes out to our list of foster care volunteers. The first willing foster home will come to AHS and pick up the animal, along with all available information and supplies. The animal goes to the foster home until they are ready for adoption. You may need to bring the animals back to the shelter periodically for medical check-ups. The animal is returned to the Austin Humane Society and placed up for adoption. The animal gets adopted. The animal lives happily ever after.Video:
