BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The holidays can be a lonely time for those without a family to love; that includes homeless pets in shelters.
It’s also a busy time and the hustle and bustle of the season can sometimes overshadow the true meaning: togetherness and family.
The SPCA of Brevard is reaching out and asking for local families to give back this holiday season by temporarily fostering a dog or a cat in need of a home for the holidays.
Starting December 17th, the public can take home a pet from the SPCA’s Titusville shelter to foster during the holidays. The SPCA will provide all supplies that families will need to care for the pet; all the foster families need to supply is the love.
The temporary foster period will last until January 4th or until another date that is specified between the shelter and the foster family.
“There is nothing quite as selfless as giving shelter and love to another creature in need, and during the holidays, this type of kindness is even more special,” said Susan Naylor, public relations coordinator for the SPCA.
“Even a short break from shelter life, like a week or two, benefits these dogs and cats enormously. Many times, the foster families fall in love and end up adopting their foster pets, but even if they don’t, the information we receive on how a pet did in a home during their break is invaluable in helping us find the perfect permanent home for that animal.”
All animals over six months of age at the SPCA are eligible to participate in the Home for the Holidays foster program. Potential foster families can simply show up at the adoption center during business hours and staff will help pair them up with a pet that will fit in their household.
If families have dogs and would like to foster a dog, they will need to bring their current dog(s) to meet a shelter dog. For more information, call 321-567-3615. The SPCA of Brevard is located at 6035 Sisson Road in Titusville.
