This #FosterFriday, we want to remind you that our Foster Fair is coming up tomorrow! Stop by the shelter, 4775 Dorman St., any time between 1 to 4 p.m. IHS foster families and staff will be on hand to show you the various ways you can help shelter animals – from feeding bottle babies or socializing kittens to caring for dogs recovering from orthopedic injuries or even just taking a shelter pup out for an off-site adventure! If you've ever been interested in becoming a foster parent, this is a great opportunity to ask questions.
