The Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter note that “Foster guardians are special people … compassionate souls who open their hearts and homes to cats and dogs in need, willing to provide love and care to animals on a temporary basis, sometimes just for a few days, sometimes a few months, depending on the needs of the animal. Foster homes truly are an extension of our shelter.”
PSAS is an “open door” public shelter, and they rely on foster guardians to ensure every animal gets a successful start before getting adopted. Long term shelter residents need fosters too! They need practice being in home, playing in the back yard and snuggling on the sofa. If you are interested in becoming a Foster Ambassador, please contact a member of their Placement Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shelter at 760-416-5718.
