TAILS Humane Society is Looking for Loving Foster Homes
Did you know that before an animal enters the TAILS Humane Society facility to be placed for adoption, they often must go to a foster home for a couple of weeks? Because of this, TAILS is looking for volunteers who are interested in fostering litters of puppies or kittens as well as people willing to provide care for special needs adult dogs and cats.
Dogs and puppies transported from overcrowded shelters are not generally initially housed at the TAILS shelter due to space limitations. Also, puppies tend to be more susceptible to diseases like upper respiratory infection and parvovirus than adult dogs, and are safer in foster homes until they are fully vaccinated (2-3 vaccinations at 2 week intervals). In addition, the animal might have had a poor diet and is so stressed that they need a short period to relax and build up its immune system. Quarantine is for two weeks in the foster home where it can be dewormed, receive shots and a good diet, and have a stable environment. While there, the dog or cat experiences a nurturing, loving environment which will promote the growth, healing and socialization needed until their "forever home" can be found.
In order to become a foster family, interested people should complete a TAILS Foster Program application and attend an orientation session. TAILS will provide food, a crate or puppy pen, newspapers and blankets/towels as needed as well as all medications, vaccinations, dewormers and veterinary care - all you need to provide is the love!
Please contact Verna Holland at email@example.com or 815-758-2457 ext 108 for more information about fostering any type of animal for TAILS. TAILS Humane Society is located at 2250 Barber Greene Road in DeKalb.
