Interested in having a pet around but can't commit full time? Want to help save the lives of innocent creatures in desperate need of a safe environment? Look no further.

The Foster Care Program at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona helps to save thousands of animals lives each year by finding temporary homes for animals that are not yet ready to be adopted.

Underweight, underage, sick or injured animals are placed in a foster home through the volunteers of the Foster Care Program until they are ready to be adopted. Animals involved in ongoing criminal investigations are also sent to a foster home during the process.

If you are interested in helping animals that need a loving home, the HSSA will be hosting a Foster Care Carnival on Monday to give information about the program and how to be a part of it. There will also be refreshments and games, as well as plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the program.

The event will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. tonight at the Companions for Life Center, 3465 E. Kleindale Rd. (right around the corner form the shelter). For more information on the event, click here.
