Dogs and cats looking for foster families

Every year in southern Colorado, eight to nine-thousand cats and dogs need a temporary home while they prepare for adoption.

The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak region and Pueblo Animal Services are looking for foster families who can take these animals into their homes.

The big need right now is for volunteers who can take in pregnant animals or animals that have medical needs.

"Foster care is a program that saves lives, and that's what we're trying to do here is to make life better for all animals in our community and make sure they get into a good home," says Erin Carroll, Community Resources Manager for the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.
