Adopters and fosters are needed for dogs currently in the shelter in order to make room for the incoming transfer. “Unfortunately, many shelters in Florida are experiencing an overpopulation crisis right now and we urgently need the help of our community to open up their home either permanently or temporarily,” states CEO Kate Meghji.

Fostering or adopting a dog currently at the HSVB shelter will allow the organization to help save the lives of dogs who have no other options left for them. Adoption fees for all HSVB dogs are waived through Monday, May 2, and all foster families will be provided with all of the supplies they will need to bring a homeless dog home for a staycation.

“Foster homes are absolutely critical to our mission. Whether someone only fosters once, or over and over again, they will allow us to save more lives and assist more at-risk shelters. It’s really that simple”, Kate explains. “We can’t do this work without our community’s help and support.”

Information about adoption and foster opportunities for the dogs being transferred in will be made available once they have received medical evaluations and care.
