Animal Aid a non-profit, no-kill shelter and pet rescue organization located in SW Portland urgently needs foster homes for cats and dogs. Our shelter houses our homeless cats, but we also have cats and dogs in foster homes. Due to the lack of foster homes we are turning away dogs and some cats in need every week. You supply the love and shelter while Animal Aid supplies counseling, support, medical expenses and food (when we have excess). We post the adoptable pet on our Web site and on Petfinders and we screen potential applicants. Won't you open your home and heart to a homeless cat or dog in need? Provide a little love and receive a lot of love and satisfaction in return! With the current economy more pets are going homeless. Please help us save the lives of our furry friends. Please call our office at 503-292-6628 and leave a message about your interest in fostering or go to our Web site www.AnimalAidPDX.org and completer the foster application.
