Charleston area shelters have limited space available to care for homeless animals. For example, due to space and resource constraints, 42% of kittens that entered Charleston County shelters in 2011 were euthanized.

Foster homes increase the shelters' ability to save lives by providing temporary homes for animals with treatable illnesses and conditions, or that need a little extra care outside of the shelter environment.

Pet Helpers provides all special training and supplies necessary for fostering. Round-the-clock support from Pet Helpers staff and Veterinarians is also available. The commitment to foster an animal is short term and enables Pet Helpers to save more lives.

Pet Helpers is currently recruiting foster parents and will be at Pet Fest this weekend to answer any and all of your questions.
