Christmas in July- Home for the Holidays

August 30, 2022

Thanks to YOU, Christmas in July was a great success!

Fostering Leads to Adoption

We began the Christmas in July- Home for the Holidays program after great success in increased adoptions with our Home for the Holidays program at Christmas time. The program serves as a way to give shelter pets a break from shelter life, while letting potential adopters see if the animal is a good fit in their home. If the foster decides to finalize an adoption, the adoption fee is reduced for pets adopted at any time during the duration of the program. If the pet is not a good fit for a particular home, the pet at least was able to spend some time out of the shelter in a home environment learning social skills and enjoying attention and a change of scenery. The pet may be returned at any time during the duration of the program and the foster may choose another pet who may be a better fit in the home.

Outcomes from Christmas in July

41 Adoptions- 18 Cats and 23 Dogs!
