Have you ever considered fostering a puppy or a kitten? The Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority (SVACA) is looking for volunteers. Foster parents provide temporary in-home care for puppies and kittens until they are old enough or weigh enough to be available for adoption at SVACA.
In order to qualify, you need to be 18 years or older and have an extra room in your house to keep the foster animals separate from other animals in the household. SVACA provides food and approved veterinary care, but you may need to pay for crates or other supplies.
Fostering is not for everyone, but it’s a rewarding and fulfilling program that helps save the lives of animals that might not otherwise have a chance. For more information about becoming a foster parent, contact SVACA at 408-764-0344 or visit the SVACA website.
Pet of the Week
This week’s pet looking for a forever home is George, a very friendly gray-and-white tabby. He’s 2-3 years old and loves, loves, loves people. He enjoys snuggling on laps and in bed when he’s not playing. George is best as an only cat. He tested FIV-positive, which means he has feline immunodeficiency virus.
For more information about George and other cats available for adoption, visit the 13th Street Cats website. 13th Street Cats also holds adoption fairs at on the first and third Saturdays of the month.
