    Town Lake Animal Center Program for Homeless Pets

    March 2nd, 2010
    by admin

    The Town Lake Animal Center has a brand new program committing to saving the lives of Central Texas’ homeless pets. Town Lake’s new Foster Program is actively recruiting homes who can serve as volunteer foster homes.

    Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Department’s Animal Services took in over 20,000 animals last year. This included thousands of underage puppies and kittens. If these very young animals have an opportunity to thrive they can be adopted out into a loving, permanent homes. That’s where the city shelter’s Foster Program can make a tremendous difference.

    No special training or skills are required to be a foster parent for homeless animals in Central Texas. Just a little room, a little extra time and a lot of love!
