Stray Rescue is looking for a few good foster families.
The no-kill shelter is getting ready to remodel and needs place about 50 dogs and cats in temporary homes. Thanks to a $75,000 grant from the Petco Foundation, the shelter is getting a new state-of-the-art intake area.
In order to get the remodeling done, Stray Rescue hopes to put the animals in temporary loving homes. The shelter’s founder, Randy Grim, says they will provide foster families all the supplies.
“These dogs need place to go, so we're looking for temporary fosters homes,” says Grim. “We'll supply everything medical, food, training, we just ask that you come on down, or go to our website, contact Valerie and give them a place to lay their head while we are doing this construction.”
If you decide to keep your foster pet, adoption fees that are normally $100 will only be $50. That price includes spaying or neutering, vaccinations, microchip and one year of free training. Puppies under 6-months are not eligible.
Construction starts next week and is expected to last 8 weeks. If you're interested in adopting or being a temporary foster family, give Stray Rescue a call or visit their website.
The no-kill organization is located at 2320 Pine St. in downtown St. Louis. Fill out the online application strayrescue.org/FosterApplication or call 314-771-6121.
