Is there anything cuter than a kitten? Yes – three of them!
This trio of sweet baby cats is currently in foster care as they are too young for adoption. The foster sent us the following photos to show this team in action.

Meet Huckleberry Finn! This handsome little pup went out to foster care after coming down with kennel cough – though you wouldn’t know if from his alert stance and big smile! He’ll be in his foster’s care for a couple of weeks while he recovers. In the meantime, we have a quick update on his status for you below:
“He’s eating well, really nice temperament, and he’s pretty smart as far as training is concerned. He’s not very bitey either and is already quite the celebrity in our neighborhood.”
If you’re interested in fostering pups like Huckleberry Finn, consider joining our foster team! An application, and details, can be found on our website here.
Here at The Anti-Cruelty Society spring means that there’s two big things on our minds: Bark in the Park and the beginning of kitten season!
As temperatures heat up we will start to see an influx of teeny felines coming through our doors, many who are too young to go up for adoption. That’s where foster volunteers come in!
These dedicated volunteers open their homes to under-age kittens, caring for them until they are at least 2 months old and weigh in at two pounds or more. All of the kittens sent out into foster care have already received a physical examination, a first round of vaccines and are eating solid food. All kitten kibble and veterinary care is provided by the Society. All the foster volunteer needs to do is provide them with a warm, safe and loving space in which they can grow.
If you’ve considered joining our foster team – now is the time! We’ll get you trained and ready to go just as kitten numbers begin to increase. With the foster team’s help – we’ll be sending over thirty kittens a month out into their care. That’s why it’s the perfect time of year to get involved!

We love receiving updates from our foster regarding their current charges and enjoy sharing their progress with our supporters.
An adorable puppy named Addison (previously named Mary) went out to foster care after contracting kennel cough. Her fosters have been doting on her and day and night and sent us the following update:
Addison is doing great. She finished her meds and seems to have stopped coughing. She is very well behaved and only had 2 pee accidents so far. She took to toileting in the yard very well. She has eaten the dry food from the first day with no need for canned food.
She is not crazy about the leash, but is getting used to it a little.
All in all a very nice puppy.

Summer is prime foster season here at The Anti-Cruelty Society. Come June, July and August we are flooded with puppies, kittens and adult pets who are looking for new homes. Many of these pets are either too young, shy or sick to be placed for adoption – which is where our foster volunteers come in!
Lady is a timid Chihuahua who came to us when her owners were having issues with their landlords. Shy at first, Lady is quick to bond closely with her caretakers, and will make a quiet yet devoted pet.
Lady can be a bit of a picky eater – but much of that may be attributed to the fact that she’s sick with kennel cough. Lady’s also a funny dog, too. She has an adorable dance that she does upon greeting those she knows… paws in the air and lots of butt wiggling!
Lady will be in foster care for another week or so – check back to the foster blog for details on her once she returns to the shelter.
