It feels like we went to sleep one night, and woke up the next morning to a booming foster network! During a time full of uncertainty, we are so glad that the pets in our care have this incredible family to depend on.
Without a lot of volunteers and many of our staff staying home due to the pandemic, finding fosters for our animals has been more important than ever. Without this support, we wouldn't have the capacity to care for all of our incoming rescues and transports from shelters and communities placed in challenging situations due to the pandemic.
Austin, and the community beyond, did not disappoint, stepping up to the plate to support vulnerable Central Texas shelter pets. These foster superheroes are providing a warm place to stay for more than 82% of our residents during the height of the pandemic. Even Antoni Porowski from Queer Eye joined our ranks, fostering an adorable dog named Neon.
So, how have our fosters and their furry friends kept busy during the coronavirus? Their antics are sure to lift your spirits and give you all the warm fuzzies as we start to return back to our “new” normal. Plus, we’re happy to report that all of the foster animals featured in this post found their forever homes in spite of the challenges they faced during the quarantine.
