The Seattle Animal Shelter Foster Critter Program is recruiting! Foster parents on this team help care for a variety of animals, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, birds, and reptiles depending on the animals that need a foster home and your interest/experience. Critters might be fostered because they’re too young to find a forever home, are recovering from illness/injury, or to help relieve overcrowding at the shelter.
Critters are more adoptable at the shelter than directly from foster care, so our foster cases are usually short term. However it is possible for some foster cases to last 2-3 months. Our greatest need is foster families for rabbits and guinea pigs. After cats and dogs, rabbits are the third most adopted animal from SAS.
A Foster Rabbit Info Session will be held on Saturday, September 15th from 2-3pm in the upstairs conference room. We will discuss how the Critter Foster program works, what to expect as a foster parent, and some of the peculiarities of house rabbits. The session will conclude with a brief tour of the critter room and the chance to meet some bunnies.’
Please help spread the word, folks who are not current SAS volunteers are welcome to attend. If you are interested in volunteering as a critter foster parent, please join us on September 15th or contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org
