Now is the Time to Foster a Pet, or Adopt a Dog or a Cat


Cities all over the country are seeking those willing to foster a pet, and hoping for increased adoptions. Where I live, in Chicago, people are stepping up. And the same is occurring in many cities.

If you can’t adopt, then foster a pet ! Each one of the following rescues has foster applications on their website. Simply fill out the application and follow-up with an email or a message on their facebook pages!

The concern is that shelter volunteers and staff will be unable or unwilling to work or volunteer (which has begun to happen) .

Dogs and cats are actually quite safe to adopt or foster regarding transmission of COVID-19; there’s no issue there.

The real issue may be that people continue to lose their jobs more animals may be relinquished (a problem which already begun to occur in places in the U.S.). This list may be for Chicago but nearly every community will benefit with your help.
