    2.    ***FOSTERS NEEDED! ***  

                 Our three day tent adoption event is just around the corner (Oct 24-26), and we are already busy in preparation. Because all animals at the event     need to be spayed/neutered, we are looking to the community for foster assistance. In order to meet our adoption goals, we are in need of 40(!), foster homes for the weeks leading up to our Adopt-a-thon. This enables us to move animals to homes as they are spayed/neutered so that we can have the space, time and opportunity to ready even more for the event. With your help, our goal is to place 100 animals into forever homes over our adopt-a-thon weekend! If you are interested in becoming a foster, please message us here with your contact information and if you have a preference of animal. All animals that have already been spayed/neutered will be available for foster care and can be viewed at www.petharbor.com. We will need fosters to provide transportation to the event, but there is no other cost associated with foster care. Fosters will also be given the option to adopt during that week. Please consider becoming an OCAS foster "parent" and help us make our goal a reality!
