The Montgomery County Animal Shelter is asking for the help of the public.
KBTX has been telling you about the shelter's new plan to implement a "no kill" policy for the month of February. The policy has been successful thus far but has led to overcrowding and lack of proper medical care for the animals.
The shelter is asking you to consider fostering an animal. If an animal is taken into foster care, they have a better chance of staying healthy and adapting to a new life.
As many as 100 stray, abandoned and unwanted animals are taken into the shelter daily.
Fostering an animal can help prevent illness and it costs less to neuter ($40) and spay ($60) an animal that is being fostered. An animal that is taken into foster care from MCAS will also receive all vaccines and medical needs at no cost.
"All we ask is that you open your homes and your hearts to these innocent animals. We coordinate several off-site adoption events every weekend and fostered animals are always welcome at these events," said Jackie Gregory, Foster Coordinator, "The more exposure a foster animal has to the public the better chance of finding a forever family."
For more information regarding fostering a pet please e-mail Jackie Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unwilling to take an animal in but still want to help the shelter, monetary donations are greatly appreciated.
