Do you want to bring home some magic this holiday season? Want to experience the joy you remember from your childhood — and save a pet’s life at the same time? Here’s how: Foster a homeless pet!

Fostering doesn’t just give pets a place to lay their heads. Spending time in a home, with a human or family of their own, sets them up for success and happiness in their future adoptive home. A dog or cat also tends to be more relaxed in a home environment, which gives you a chance to learn about his or her personality – key for potential adopters. All the while, you feel pretty darn amazing about giving the pet a second chance at life without the long-term commitment.

Pets need foster homes for a lot of reasons, even if it’s just for the holiday season. Some are very stressed in the shelter, and need a break. Sometimes the shelter is full, and needs some short-term excess capacity, particularly since boarding kennels are usually booked up during the holidays.

What’s more, it’s a good deed without a price tag! From food and supplies to on-call support, most programs provide you with everything you need. As an added bonus, you have a furry companion to snuggle with, walk with, and most importantly, to help you fully enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.
