Have a passion for saving orphaned pets? Can you offer a between-homes home to a dog or cat? Have place in your heart and your house for a temporary visitor of the furry kind? Then this party is for you!
The Maryland SPCA will hold an open house for prospective pet foster care volunteers from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 11. Attendees will learn how fostering needy pets can help save lives; meet current foster parents and the animals they care for; learn how to set up their homes to make fostering work for them; and receive a tour of the MD SPCA.
“Last year, 722 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens received temporary care and shelter in the homes of our foster parents,” said Rae Borsetti, volunteer/foster coordinator, MD SPCA. “It is critical that we continue to grow our foster program in order to save more pets’ lives.”
Kittens, dogs, or cats can spend several days to a few weeks in foster homes, depending on the reason they need in-home care. The MD SPCA provides training and supplies to people who foster, and carefully matches animals with foster families to meet everyone’s needs.
For more information about the Open House or foster care program, contact Rae Borsetti at 410-235-8826 x147 or Rae@mdspca.org. The MD SPCA is located at 3300 Falls Road in Baltimore.
