This Saturday MADACC and the Petco Foundation are inviting the public to learn more about the lifesaving impact of fostering animals.
The summer months are a busy time for animal welfare organizations. There is often an increase in animal intake and demand for services. Many of these animals are simply in need of a place to stay while they await a new home. Providing them care in a temporary foster home can help save their lives.
“Fostering can be a fun, educational activity for families and individuals,” said Petco Foundation executive director Susanne Kogut. “It can teach children responsibility, while providing the life-saving care animals need.”
Learn more about how you can help MADACC at Petco (3870 N. 124th Street) on Saturday, July 22 from 10 am to 12 pm.
MADACC volunteers and staff will be on hand to:
• Demonstrate how to care for kittens
• Provide more information about how to become a foster
• Accept applications to become a foster family
• Introduce families to pets who are ready to be fostered
Since 1999, the Petco Foundation, has invested more than $185 million in lifesaving animal welfare organizations in communities across the country.
