Urgent Appeal to the Community: Foster Homes Needed ASAP!

The Pennsylvania SPCA (PSPCA) is making an urgent appeal to the community to provide foster homes for our dogs in need. The Animal Care & Control Team shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) and the PSPCA Adoption Center (350 E. Erie Avenue) in Philadelphia are full to capacity and we’ve tapped out our existing network of foster parents.

If you can provide temporary housing for a dog, we will provide free medical care and support in return. Foster homes are needed immediately! The longer you can foster the dog, the more lives we can save. 

If you already have a dog, you can still help – just bring your dog with you for a meet-and-greet.

If you can help, please contact ACCT Lifesaving Manager Natalie Smith at nsmith@pspca.org or (267) 385-3800 (ask for the “Lifesaving Department”), or contact PSPCA Director of Adoptions, Rescue, and Foster Care Ray Little at rlittle@pspca.org or (215) 426-6300 (ask for the “Adoptions Counter”).

To view some of the many dogs that need foster care, visit http://www.pspca.org/adoption_centers. As of today, all of these dogs are available for foster care. There are many, many more dogs who aren't listed on this website!

If you can’t become a foster, please consider making a donation to our foster program. Your donation will help offset the cost of medical care for foster animals. To make an online donation visit: http://www.pspca.org/donate (please include the word “FOSTER” in your donation). If you have questions or need additional support, please contact our Director of Development Rachel McCrystal at rmccrystal@pspca.org or (215) 426-6300 ext 217.

On behalf of all our furry friends in need, THANK YOU!!!
