Every year, thousands of adoptable pets are left to spend the holidays in shelters, without the warmth of a home and the love of a family. Think about it — how many people are thinking “pet adoption” right now — in the middle of holiday parties, hitting the mall, going on vacation, etc.
But not everyone is that busy for the holidays. And Petfinder.com hopes some of them might want something warm and furry to hold between Christmas and New Years.
For the second year, Petfinder invites people to participate in its “Foster A Lonely Pet For The Holidays” program where they partner with more than 1,600 shelters and rescue groups, including many in our area.
