Fosters Needed For Dogs On The Move

NOTE: TRANSPORTS OUT OF STATE HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED TO COMPLY WITH STATE AND FEDERAL QUARANTINE RECOMMENDATIONS.  YOU MAY STILL APPLY TO FOSTER, BUT WE WILL NOT BE TRANSPORTING ANIMALS UNTIL THE RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED

Living in the south, it is hard to believe that there are places in the U.S that actually have a shortage of shelter dogs, but it’s true.  The Humane Society has joined with several other shelters who transport dogs and puppies to waiting adopters in Connecticut.  To ensure that they are ready for their trip, we ask fosters to take these dogs into their homes for two weeks before their scheduled trip.

Families with other pets are welcome and encouraged to foster transport dogs as long as your pets are current on vaccinations.  However, they can’t go to dog parks or public places where unknown dogs are present. Be sure to crate your foster for several hours/day, if possible, to prepare them for transport. (Frozen Kong toys filled with peanut butter make great treats for a crated dog).

Dogs will need to be transported to the vet for their health check (for their health certificate) and to Petsmart in NLR by 5am the day of the transport.  This is a GREAT oipportunity to save lives and requires only a short term commitment.

NOTE: Fosters must be at least 21 years old and able to transport animals to the transport site and to the shelter for their Health Certificate as scheduled.
