Afraid of Commitment? Try Animal Fostering!

VBPD-NR:12-085

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Are you afraid of a long-term pet commitment but miss having a furry friend in your life? Are you in the military and worried about short notice deployments that would keep you from owning a pet? Try fostering!


The Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center needs volunteers to provide short-term in-home care for friendly dogs, cats, or other animals in need until they are adopted. The length of fostering can vary from a few days to several months. The Animal Care and Adoption Center will help you get started and ALL veterinary care is provided by our staff veterinarian!


If fostering sounds like it might be a PURfect solution to your commitment worries, please join us for a “Meet and Greet” Wednesday night, June 13, 2012 from 7pm to 8pm at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center located at 341 S. Birdneck Road. Staff and Volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions about the Fostering Program and provide you with the applications needed to get you started on the right paw.


Military members and people who travel frequently are strongly encouraged to apply!
