To introduce families to the joy of fostering dogs and cats, Asheville Humane Society is sponsoring FOSTERPALOOZA 2012, a free event, on Saturday, January 28, at the Adoption and Education Center, 14 Forever Friend Lane, Asheville. The program will begin promptly at 1 PM and will end no later than 3 PM.
At this family-friendly event, the public will learn how to share the love by fostering an animal for Asheville Humane Society. A foster mom will make a presentation and attendees can speak with foster parents of kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs. Children will meet some foster animals and participate in fun activities.
"Asheville Humane Society's foster program is a crucial part of our mission to care for the homeless and abandoned animals of Buncombe County," says Katherine McGowan Shenar, president/CEO. "By placing dogs and cats who need some extra TLC in foster homes, we have been able to save hundreds more lives. It's a great way for families to share their love and experience the joy of fostering."
Foster families are given complete instructions and there is no cost to foster an animal -- all medications, food, and supplies are provided. Foster commitments can last as little as a few weeks.
The Adoption and Education Center is at 14 Forever Friend Lane, next door to the Buncombe County Animal Shelter on the County's "Animal Care Campus," at the intersection of Brevard Road and Pond Road, close to the Farmers Market.
