Animal Fostering and Adoption

My name is Anthony Requia and I wanted to take this opportunity to share an important cause with you. My wife recently introduced me to animal fostering and adoption. She uses social media to network animals in the Los Angeles area and other parts of the country and gives them the exposure they otherwise may not have received due to the limited resources of the county run shelters.

This is a noble cause for so many reasons, however, it also creates a unique opportunity for animal lovers to foster animals ranging from kittens and puppies to dogs and cats of all ages and provide them with a good home until they can be permanently adopted. This gets our furry friends out of the overcrowded shelters and off the potential euth list and into a good home, where they can be socialized, loved and provide companionships for individuals and families.

If you are considering a pet but aren't sure what's right for you, fostering is an excellent option because it gives you a chance to see if the cat or dog is the right fit for you before making the long term commitment to adopt. Not only does it save you money but it saves a life! Contact your local animal shelter for more details on how to become a foster or a volunteer and feel free to reach out to me on Twitter if you need more information on how to get started!
