Animal Services is seeking residents for the Foster Over the 4th program to shelter pets in need from the Adoption Center over the holiday weekend.
Pick-ups and drop-offs are by appointment only. Foster pick-ups will take place on Thursday, June 30 or Friday, July 1, with pets returning for drop-off on Tuesday, July 5 or Wednesday, July 6. Animal Services is closed on Monday, July 4.
Animal Services supplies all fosters with a crate/carrier, food, bowls, and a leash/collar for dogs. All dogs and cats eligible for fostering must be current on rabies vaccines and spayed/neutered, if old enough. Strays must also be off their five-day hold to be eligible to leave for foster care. Dogs and cats eligible for foster/adoption can be seen at www.accgov.com/fosterapet.
Residents interested in participating in the Foster Over the 4th 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.
