Sybil Miller: There’s no time like the present to become a pet foster parent
November 12, 2010
To the Editor:
If you have ever thought about becoming a foster parent to a homeless pet, now is the time to act upon it. Thanks to its partnership with Grand County Pet Pals, our local Grand County Animal Shelter is a no-kill shelter. Unfortunately, because of the economy and limited space, other shelters in the state continue to face the awful task of having to euthanize perfectly healthy animals who haven’t been adopted within their allocated time.
If you are concerned about fostering because you’re worried that you’ll get attached and experience too much heartache letting the pet go, don’t. Think about how you are that one, hugely significant step on the homeless animal’s journey to a forever home, where he/she can be loved and cared for the rest of its life.
For more information about fostering and/or if you would like to adopt a dog/cat not available at the Grand County Animal Shelter, please email: email@example.com
