Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
*It's Kitten Season! Warm weather brings kittens with it, so the Animal Shelter needs fosters who can help the little ones grow up until they are old enough to be put up for adoption.*
The City of Plano Animal Shelter is always seeking volunteers to join the foster program. A foster parent provides a temporary home for kittens, puppies, dogs, or cats to address a temporary medical or mild behavioral issue prior to the animal being placed up for adoption. The devotion, care, and socialization given during this time greatly increase the animal’s chance to be adopted by a loving home. Training is provided, no previous experienced required.
