Special Needs Fostering
The Pike County Humane Society is in need of foster homes. Many dogs that wind up abandoned here or rescued from abuse and neglect by our dedicated team, need some special attention. We have one dog right now that needs a quiet place to heal. As wonderful as this shelter is, it isn't exactly "quiet."
Many times an injured dog or cat just needs a chance to heal in a clean, quiet, still, safe environment. Sometimes the pet needs that extra love and tenderness necessary to learn to trust again.
If you could offer temporary sanctuary in your home to a needy pet for us, you'd be helping to get that animal the second chance it deserves at finding a permanent home.
Call the shelter at 570-296-7654. Ask to speak with Barry about becoming a foster home to a special needs pet.
The cost to you would be minimal: a little food, a little warmth.
The benefit to the neey animal is absolutely immeasurable.
