The Pima Animal Care Center is looking for people to foster pets from the shelter. The new program offers the opportunity to help one or more animals without a long-term commitment.

The shelter recently hired a veterinarian, who can help people who foster animals.

“By nursing pets that are still too young to go up for adoption or that are recovering from illness or injury, foster homes help those pets become stronger and more adoptable,” according to a press release from the county-run shelter.

Available for fostering are all sorts of animals, from puppies and kittens to senior animals, pets recovering from surgery and nursing mothers.

The shelter, at 4000 N. Silverbell Road, is open seven days a week — noon-7 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, except the last Sunday of the month.

To learn more about the program or attend an orientation, call Justin Gallick at 243-5929.
