Napanee, ON (May 18, 2022) – Do you have room in your heart and in your home to help animals in need of foster care? If you’re interested in becoming a foster parent to animals who need extra TLC, the Ontario SPCA Lennox & Addington Animal Centre needs your help.
The Ontario SPCA Lennox & Addington Animal Centre is currently recruiting foster volunteers to temporarily provide a safe and nurturing environment in their home for animals in need. There is currently a need for volunteers who can care for pregnant dogs and cats and their litters, once born. There is also a need for foster volunteers with no animals of their own at home who can care for animals requiring specialized medical care.
The Foster Program benefits animals who are not ready for adoption and who are either too young, sick, injured, under socialized or emotionally stressed to thrive in the animal centre environment. Instead, animals are cared for and rehabilitated in a nurturing foster home.
“Fostering animals in need is a rewarding experience for the volunteer and a critical source of support for our animal centres,” says Esther McCutcheon, Manager, Ontario SPCA Lennox & Addington Animal Centre. “To give vulnerable animals the best opportunity at the second chance they deserve, we’re asking anyone who can help to join our team.”
