Fostering for LCHS

As we approach the middle of May, the intake rate

animal shelters are facing remains at a constant increase.

There is no wonder that May is National Foster Care Month.

We have mentioned in previous articles that fostering

animals strongly increases the chances for long term


With our shelter, Lee County Humane Society remaining at full

capacity, adopters are needed more than ever. Some of our

animals might need a little more time adjusting in social

situations, but the shelter needs room. Fostering

accomplishes an immediate solution to both of these issues.

The shelter becomes less crowded and the animals get to

live a less stressful life, with socializing along the way.
