Learn how to foster an animal Saturday

This Saturday, July 22, 1–3 p.m. at the West Valley Parkway Petco, Lazy Dog Rescue and the Petco Foundation are inviting the public to learn more about the lifesaving impact of fostering animals.

The summer months are a busy time for animal welfare organizations. There is often an increase in animal intake and demand for services. Many of these animals are simply in need of a place to stay while they await a new home. Providing them care in a temporary foster home can help save their lives.

“Fostering can be a fun, educational activity for families and individuals,” said Petco Foundation executive director Susanne Kogut. “It can teach children responsibility, while providing the life-saving care animals need.”

The Petco location is 1000 W Valley Pkwy, Escondido.

Lazy Dog Rescue volunteers and staff will be on hand to:

• Provide more information about how to become a foster

• Accept applications to become a foster family

Since 1999, the Petco Foundation, has invested more than $185 million in lifesaving animal welfare organizations in communities across the country.

Lazy Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill dog rescue organization specializing in the Low Rider Breeds: Bassets, Corgis, and Dachshunds. They rescue dogs from shelters at risk of being euthanized as well as abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. They also rescue many dogs from owners who are forced to surrender their dogs due to financial or personal issues.
