THE CLOCK IS TICKING....

YOU CAN GIVE THEM MORE TIME BY

FOSTERING A DOG OR CAT TODAY!

 

Make a direct difference in just one life!  We are always in DIRE need of people to house animals who are highly adoptable, but have run out of time at an animal control facility.  Nothing at all wrong with the animal, just happens not be found quickly enough by its future family and has to be moved out, either by euthanasia or by fostering, to make room for other homeless hopefuls.  Please help save some of them by offering a safe haven until they can be adopted.

Also, we need dedicated people who are willing to care for "special needs" animals that will be destroyed, if left in the kennel, because they require more time and care than the staff can provide.  “Special Needs” may mean a new mother with babies, an animal with a curable condition that requires time to heal, a puppy or kitten too young to be adopted, etc.

The clock is ticking for all these animals even as you browse this site.  If you are interested in adopting or fostering an animal you see here,  DON'T delay, ...NOT even an hour!!

If you wish to become a foster home for Baytown Humane Society, Please email us at: Baccr1@aol.com    You will be gratified by the feeling you get knowing you have saved the life of a special animal, and offered a great pet to a loving family who will enjoy it for years to come. 

 

WHAT FOSTER CARE CAN DO!

She had no name, she had no home, she had no hope.  She was a white Husky mix who was found in Baytown's Animal Control Facility looking like this: 



BHS volunteers thought perhaps she had been injured by falling out of the back of a truck or hit by an automobile.  She had to remain at the Animal Control facility for her required 4 days, before she could be put out of her misery. But one BHS volunteer couldn't walk away and leave her there to be euthanized when her time was up. 
         
That volunteer adopted the filthy, bloody dog, named her "Ginger" and took her home to heal.  It was discovered that the tears in Ginger's skin were not from an accident, but from vicious clawing that she had done to herself because of a severe case of mange!  Her treatment for mange started at once.  Here's a couple of pictures of a recovering Ginger, being socialized with other animals and people, too. 

   

That's what fostering can do for the animal and for the people who ultimately bring them into their homes for the rest of their lives.  What fostering does for the foster parent(s) is give the MOST fulfilling and  deeply rewarding feeling you can imagine.  

Yes, it is sometimes a pain to have to deal with whatever the situation is; Yes, it sometimes cramps your life-style; But, Yes, you KNOW you are doing something very worthwhile; Yes, you know it's not going to be forever; Yes, you know that your bit of temporary inconvenience means LIFE to the animal; Yes, the animal repays you a thousand times over with love and gratefulness; and Yes, you are giving a GREAT gift to someone you don't even know, yet, by saving the animal that they will enjoy and share life with for years to come.

Please say YES to becoming a foster parent to an animal that needs a little care and a safe place to heal!
