Foster homes needed
The Franklin County Humane Society seeks foster homes in Franklin County, Wake Forest, North Raleigh and the Brier Creek area for cats, kittens, dogs and puppies who are rescued from the shelter and other homeless situations.
Fostering involves providing a safe, temporary home for a homeless pet until it is adopted. The Humane Society provides food and supplies and pays vet bills.
Foster parents must be able to bring the pet to adoption events on Saturdays and transport to the vet if necessary. For more information, see fchsnc.org or call 919-990-1045.
