Houston County Humane Society seeks foster homes

The Humane Society of Houston County is seeking foster homes for homeless pets waiting to be adopted.

Humane Society President Debbie Martin said in a news release that fostering helps volunteers place pets in the right forever home.

“Fostering pets allows us to learn more about the personality of each pet so that we can place the pet in a home that would be the best fit,” she said in the release. “Perhaps a pet isn’t crazy about kids, cats, dogs or doesn’t do well without a fence, etc. Having a pet in a foster enables us to learn these things to help make the perfect placement.”

Fostering also allows the Humane Society to take more animals into its program, she said. The Humane Society provides most supplies needed to care for the foster pets, the release states.

For information about how to become a foster, visit the Humane Society at 810 Carl Vinson Parkway in Centerville on Wednesdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. or Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
