Foster Category: Sick & Injured
Type of Foster Home:
Melvin needs a Core Foster home. If you've had a pet or fostered before, you have all the skills you need to be a Core Foster.
Melvin is looking for a foster home until he is ready for adoption. This boy is looking for an excellent foster family until February 19th while he recovers from dental surgery. Melvin is FIV positive and will require a cat free home or a home with only FIV positive cats.
How to Foster Melvin:
Melvin is available for foster pick-up through the Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th Street.
There are many animals that need us today. Each foster family allow us to save more homeless pets by opening their home to a pet or litter in need of love and care for a few weeks. When we are able to send a pet or litter to foster, it frees up space in our Medical Center to bring in more pets in need.
Last year, our foster families took in 3,467 pets. Some needed a peaceful place to recover from illness or injury. Puppies and kittens just needed a bit of time in a home environment with good socialization so they could grow big enough to have their spay/neuter surgery before adoption. Other pets needed a calm and relaxing break from the stress of shelter life.
Consider joining them in lifesaving. Sign up to become a foster today.
