Citrus County Animal Services is in desperate need of foster homes especially for those that are most vulnerable and fragile which include neonates (bottle babies), especially kittens, moms with litters, and underage (not old enough for adoption) puppies and kittens.
We also have foster opportunities for those animals that have medical needs or who just need a break from the shelter, think of it as their vacation or weekend off from work.
Most of the animals that come into the shelter are strays; foster homes give us vital information that helps us help them find their forever home. Foster homes also play a huge role in helping animals adjust to homes, family life and help animals that may just need to learn some basic manners.
We have many foster opportunities available ranging from long term, short term, day out adventures, and more. We also can give school volunteer credit hours to those families with children.
Citrus County Animal Services provides fosters with all supplies and medical care they will need while fostering. So please help us help them by being part of the solution. Foster homes play a pivotal role in saving lives by opening up their heart and homes.
