You Can Foster Fur Babies Who Live In L.A. Shelters Over The Holidays

By Malia Wooten November 26, 2019

Los Angeles shelters are offering Angelenos short-term fostering privileges.

Open your home to a fur baby in need this holiday season! Animal shelters across town are launching a short-term foster companion program that will help socialize the animals and potentially better their chance for adoption.

Angelenos can foster for just a few hours or extend the stay to a couple of weeks. If you plan on taking a pet for just a few hours, it’s referred to as a furry field trip and there will be pre-selected animals to choose from. Animal Services hopes that the new program will help them win some of the $55,000 in grants being offered by Maddie’s Fund to organizations with short-term fostering.

L.A. Animal Services General Manager Brenda Barnette says that “even if you only spend a few hours with one of our pets on a Furry Field Trip, the socialization and love that you provide can make a huge difference in helping companion animals find loving homes.”

We don’t know about you the thought of bringing a four-legged friend home for the holidays seems like a dream come true, and who knows – you may just find your new best friend! Do something for the greater good and help an animal in need.
