If you can foster kittens for a few weeks, Stanislaus Animal Services can find them homes for life.
Summer is here and that means kitten season is well underway. Each day, dozens of orphaned kittens come into the Stanislaus Animal Services shelter in desperate need of foster care volunteers to provide them with temporary homes.
“We have many dedicated families that open their homes during kitten season, and we urgently need more volunteers for this important program. At the height of kitten season, we see an average of 50 kittens come into the shelter each day, all in need of placement in a temporary home the same day the arrive,” said Annette Patton, Executive Director for Stanislaus Animal Services Agency.
Foster care volunteers can choose which kind of animals to foster – whether they would like to provide a temporary home for kittens, a mom and kittens or puppies. The greatest need, however, is for young kittens. Some need to be bottle fed while others are already eating on their own and just need to reach two pounds in size so they can be spayed or neutered and adopted.
Experience is not required and volunteers are provided with starter supplies and a help line for the animals in care.
Consider becoming a foster care volunteer for Stanislaus Animal Services today and experience the fulfillment of helping save precious little lives. Stanislaus Animal Services Agency is at 3647 Cornucopia Way, Modesto and seeks volunteer foster homes throughout the county.
