Pet Foster Orientation Class

About: Be a real life-saver and foster a homeless kitten, puppy, cat or dog. Some assignments are just a few days and some are several weeks, but all are vital. We'll answer all the questions you may have about fostering an animal, including: What if he won't eat? What if he gets sick? What if I fall in love with him? There is no cost to attend. Pet foster parents help us save animal lives.  Become a pet foster parent.  To RSVP or for questions, contact Leslie 760-396-7313.
