We Need Dog Fosters!
Every week, Helen Woodward Animal Center rescues dozens of orphan pets from overcrowded shelters across the country. The only way that’s possible is through the Center’s foster program. By opening up their homes to animals for a short period of time, foster families provide more room for the Center to take in more orphan pets in need. A foster assignment can last anywhere between a few days to a few months, and all that’s required of the foster volunteers is their time and a willingness to open up their hearts and their homes to those in need. Helen Woodward Animal Center is hosting a foster orientation on Saturday, March 2nd, at 10 am. If you’re interested in helping the beautiful creatures that need your help the most, go to
