Couch Crashers Monthly Weekend Pet Foster Program for Thanksgiving Weekend
Athens-Clarke County Animal Services is continuing its weekend foster program each month called Couch Crashers. Couch Crashers is a collaborative program to engage the community to foster and to give Adoption Center pets a much needed break from kennel life for the weekend.
The next Couch Crashers weekend will take place over the Thanksgiving weekend. It will begin with foster pickups on Tuesday, November 24 and Wednesday, November 25, with return dates on Monday, November 30 and Tuesday, December 1. All foster pickups and drop offs will be done on an appointment only basis in 30 minute windows from 11:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. on those dates. All people and dogs living in the home must come to the appointment to make sure the foster is a good match for all involved.
ACC Animal Services supplies all fosters with a crate/carrier, food, bowls, toys, and a leash and collar. All pets must remain in the home over holiday dates, as the Adoption Center is closed.
Residents interested in participating in the Couch Crashers program should first fill out a foster application, which includes uploading a required video tour of the potential foster home, at www.accgov.com/fosterapet.
