Petfinder.com has launched its second annual “Foster A Lonely Pet For The Holidays” program. Animal lovers are being asked to consider fostering homeless pets – from Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day. The pets can spend the holidays in a warm and loving home, a welcome respite from the shelter kennels.
And more shelter volunteers and employees might have a little more time at home as well.
Visit Petfinder.com/fosteralonelypet for details and for participating rescue groups.
“The benefits of fostering go beyond just giving an adoptable pet a warm place to stay for a few weeks,” said Betsy Banks Saul, the co-founder of Petfinder.com through a press release. “It is an opportunity for families to determine if they are ready to permanently open their home to a pet while simultaneously giving shelter volunteers and staff a well-deserved break over the holidays.”
And from the release –
“” Inspired by Greg Kincaid’s book and movie, “A Dog Named Christmas,” Petfinder.com launched the program last year. The movie and book tell the story of a developmentally challenged, kind-hearted young man who sets out to convince his family — and their whole rural community — to participate in a local animal shelter’s inaugural “Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.” “”
