"Our biggest need at HAWS at this time will be foster homes for these animals. We are looking for foster homes that can give a 60-90 day commitment for these pets," HAWS Executive Director Lynn Olenik said in a news release.
"The animals coming to HAWS are from a type of ‘domino effect’ – these are animals that were already in shelters looking to be rehomed, before Hurricane Harvey’s arrival. Texas and other southern shelters need to make space for those animals that are in need of temporary and emergency shelter," she explained.
Veterinary care and behavior support, along with care supplies, will be provided to foster parents by HAWS.
If you're interested in becoming a foster parent, call the shelter at 262-542-8851, extension 0.
