Local SPCA in Need of Foster Parents for Pets

Nov. 5, 2013

The Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA is looking for more foster parents and will be holding a training session on Saturday, Nov. 9th, for anyone interested in volunteering.

A foster patent helps take care of animals until they are ready for adoption. Foster animals can be kittens that just need to be bottle-fed, or an injured dog that needs a nurse.

The program help free up some space at the SPCA for pets that are ready to be adopted.

"No matter how big of a building you build, no matter what you do, there will always be more animals available than you can take care of," says Executive Director Leslie Hervey. "Our foster families expand the size of our building exponentially. They take care of these beautiful animals and they socialize them."

The foster parenting training program is this Saturday at 10 a.m. for both new and experienced foster parents.
