At the Tri-Cities Animal Shelter, we offer a heartwarming opportunity to find new homes for cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies. Currently, adoption fees have been lowered to just $50. This fee provides crucial initial care, including spaying or neutering, the first round of vaccinations, and a microchip for your new furry family member.
Our shelter often receives animals who are too young for adoption, nursing mothers with their little ones, or pets in need of special medical attention due to illness or injury. This is where you, as a compassionate community member, can play a vital role. By opening your home for foster care, you provide these animals with the nurturing environment they need until they're ready for adoption. The duration of foster care can range from a week to two months, depending on the animal's age and medical requirements. We support our foster families by supplying basic pet necessities and covering all medical expenses incurred during the fostering period. By participating in our foster program, you not only aid the animals directly under your care but also contribute significantly to the overall functioning of the shelter, as it frees up space for other adoptable pets and ensures a peaceful recovery for those in need.
Our volunteers are the backbone of our shelter, contributing in various ways that greatly enhance the lives of our animals. Whether it's helping with laundry, walking our dogs, or spending time reading to the pets, every act of volunteerism makes a significant impact. Your involvement is not just about the tasks you perform; it's about the love and care you bring to our animals.
