Maricopa County Animal Care & Control (MCACC) is emBARKing on a mission to free up kennel space ahead of the busiest time of year for shelters nationwide—Fourth of July.
With an anticipated increase of lost dogs entering the shelters around the 4th of July holiday, MCACC is hosting a PAWtriotic Foster Event.
“Fostering is a great way to give a dog a much-needed break from the shelter and help them relax. Fostering also helps us learn more about the dogs so we can find their perfect match. Who knows, maybe their perfect match is their foster,” said Kim Powell, Communications Officer for MCACC.
MCACC is asking that PAWtriotic Fosters give a “hot dog” a home for the 4th of July and the week to follow to not only free up kennel space for lost dogs coming in, but to also allow shelter staff to better assist pet owners searching for their lost pet.
PAWtriotic Fosters can pick up their “hot dogs” at either shelter location between 12pm-3pm, daily, from June 26th to July 2nd. MCACC asks that the “hot dogs” stay with their foster through at least July 14th.
Potential fosters must complete a foster application before coming to the shelter to receive their PAWtriotic “coupon” so they can present it and select an appropriate foster for their family to welcome for the holiday.
PAWtriotic Fosters will receive a “Wag Bag” full of goodies to spoil their foster pup, while supplies last. Thank you to our partners at Two Pups Wellness Fund for donating items for the Wag Bags!
Eligible foster dogs are at least one years old, at least 30lbs, and already altered.
Fostering is a rewarding way to help animals in Maricopa County while they wait for their forever homes.
Foster. For Dogs’ Sake.
