What is a #HealthyHome Foster?
Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control (PBCACC) is seeking caring foster parents for shelter animals. A #HealthyHome Foster is a human who chooses to care for a shelter animal to increase their chances of adoption. Due to overcrowding at the shelter, PBCACC is seeking foster homes for healthy dogs in our adoption program.
How much does it cost to become a #HealthyHome Foster?
It's FREE! PBCACC supplies medical, food, collar, leash and a crate. You supply the #Love!
What if I have pets at home?
It is important to keep your #HealthyHome Foster separate from your personal pets in your home. Please remember that we do not know the full history or behavior of our shelter dogs as most arrive at the shelter as strays. It is also crucial to keep your #HealthyHome Foster separate from your personal pets since they can be incubating canine infectious respiratory diseases.
How long will a #HealthyHome Foster need fostering?
We are asking #HealthyHome Fosters to commit to a minimum of two (2) weeks of love, cuddles, happy faces and wagging tails.
What if I fall in love with my #HealthyHome Foster?
We would LOVE if your #HealthyHome Foster found their #FureverHome with you! Great news – as a #HealthyHome Foster, you get first dibs on adoption! You won't even have to come back to the shelter! Just send us an email to PSD-ACCSupport@pbcgov.org letting us know you want to adopt your #HealthyHome Foster!
