Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control

  • 27 people are interested

Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control has an overwhelming number of wonderful animals in need of good homes. Sometimes those animals come in orphaned, need to be bottle fed, or become sick and need foster care until they're healthy enough for adoption. Please consider becoming a foster parent. Fostering saves lives, mends hearts, and builds lasting bonds!

As a foster parent, you will be given all the supplies needed to care for your temporary pet. Please note that the vast majority of our animals in need of foster care are young kittens, cats, and large dogs. For more information, please contact our Foster/Rescue Coordinator, Holly Yoder at 561-233-1252 or by email at:
