Shelter Hopes To Find People To Host A Homeless Shelter Pet For A Holiday Sleepover

An animal shelter in Pennsylvania is hoping to find people in their area to open their homes to shelter pets this holiday season. On Monday, the Animal Rescue League of Berks County announced their Home for the Holidays sleepover program for homeless shelter pets.
This year, brighten the holiday season by hosting a sleepover for a homeless shelter pet who’d love to enjoy all the tidings of the season with you! Interested families can apply to take home with them an adoptable pet on December 23rd and host for as many nights as they wish throughout the holiday break.
Each pet selected for a holiday sleepover will be accompanied by a “suitcase” filled with all the supplies needed for their stay. According to the shelter, the foster family will also receive help and support from the shelter staff team to ensure that the foster family and hosted pet enjoy a “holly jolly time together.”
The temporary holiday fostering program offers pets more than a fun escape from shelter life – it also provides shelter staff with greater insight into the cat or dog’s behavior in a home setting. Knowing more about the pet’s behavior, outside of the shelter environment, gives staff important information to help place pets in the best possible situation at adoption time.
To apply, please complete an application at the shelter’s website https://www.berksarl.org/home-for-the-holidays-2021, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
