What hobby feels this good and saves a life?
Our foster care program continues to be a critical piece of our lifesaving efforts and this year we brought the total number of foster homes to 215. We matriculated 1,326 animals through our foster program this year! When an animal is sick or injured or just needs someone to teach him basic manners, foster parents help fill the gap between the time the animal is brought to Buncombe County Animal Shelter and the time he is adopted.
We need foster homes to help us save lives.
Foster parents can choose to foster kittens who are not yet old enough for adoption, cats who need a few weeks of tender loving care, puppies who require a quiet, private space, or dogs who are ill or injured and need a short recuperative stay in someone’s home until they are adoptable. Our foster program gives parents everything they need: a comprehensive manual, the support of our Foster Coordinator, and all food, supplies, and medicine.
