The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Fostering is the perfect solution for animal lovers who are not ready for a long-term commitment, but love having a furry friend to nurture and love.
So many dogs and cats have been abandoned and surrendered due to the present day foreclosures. Some people move and simply leave their animals in the empty house without food or water.
One of our dogs was rescued by ladder from an upstairs porch when a good Sam heard a dog crying in his neighbor's abandoned home. "Lucky", as she is called now, was emaciated & dehydrated, being without nourishment for 3 days. She fortunately found her way to PAWS, and thrived in her foster's care till she was adopted.
This is an opportunity for you to provide a loving, temporary home to these homeless cats, kittens, dogs and puppies until they can find their forever homes. PAWS will pay for spaying/neutering and all medical bills. We post all our rescued animals on our website, pawsohio.org, which links to Adopt a Pet to find the pet their new forever home. All applicants go through a double screening process prior to adoption.
Please go to our website: pawsohio.org, and complete a foster home application. Applicants are then notified if accepted and given instructions as to what is involved in the fostering program.
