Foster Family for the Animal Shelter

Did you know that at any point in time 50% of animals in the care of the Bloomington Animal Shelter are located in foster homes? Fostering is important because it helps reduce overcrowding in shelters and opens up space for another animal to be saved. It also helps prepare animals for adoption by giving them a chance to live in a home where they can fully express their personality, work to overcome fears, or recover from trauma. Join the Animal Shelter’s foster network now by completing the online application and orientation. You will then be added to their foster opportunity update list. You then choose when to raise your hand if and when you are ready to take on a new foster…or two. This is a family-friendly opportunity! Apply here: https://bloomington.in.gov/animal-shelter/foster
