No Kill Pima County Wants You to Find Out if Pet Fostering is For You

Posted By on Thu, Jul 25, 2013 at 3:46 PM

This Saturday, July 27, No Kill Pima County will be hosting "Fosters to the Rescue," which will bring together 22 local animal rescues to meet with the public and provide information about their foster care programs.

NKPC, a grassroots organization formed to seek more non-lethal outcomes at the Pima Animal Care Center, notes that only 51% of the dogs and cats that came to the Pima Animal Care Center left alive, while more than 11,000 died. They want to change that, giving Tucsonans the opportunity to learn about what’s involved regarding foster care and find out if volunteering to take care of a dog or cat until adopted is something for them.

Fosters to the Rescue will be held at Windmill Inn Suites at St. Philip’s Plaza, 4250 N. Campbell Avenue from 6 to 8 p.m. They also plan to offer refreshments, raffle prizes and silent auction items, and show pets available for adoption or fostering.
