Mesquite, TX – June 6, 2017 – Mesquite Animal Services is seeking volunteers for its foster program, which helps open space in the shelter and increase the number of animals adopted. The average foster home stay is about two months and Mesquite Animal Services covers all veterinary expenses. Visit www.cityofmesquite.com/Foster for more information or to download the online Foster Care Application.
The foster program strives to provide benefits for the animal and foster parent or family. Being in a home environment shows the personality of an animal and helps enhance the animal’s social skills, raising the chance of adoption. Fostering is also a great opportunity for individuals or families to determine if they are ready for a pet.
The shelter’s greatest foster needs include: animals that are too young to spay or neuter; new mothers and their litters; orphaned puppies and kittens that need to be bottle-fed; and sick or injured animals that need a quieter environment and additional care to recover.
