One of the greatest needs for animal rescue groups is temporary foster homes. Many groups don’t have a shelter and rely on their network of foster homes to care for the animal until it finds its forever home. Organizations that do have shelters frequently need foster homes for very young kittens or puppies and special needs animals or when their shelter is full.

From time to time I will feature pets in the metro Atlanta area that need a foster home. One of the current “foster pet” needs is Maybelline from Furkids. Here is more about Maybelline from the Furkids Facebook page:
“Maybelline is a beautiful senior girl that desperately needs a foster home. She has a very sad back story. She was rescued from a hoarding case, where she had been living in a small crate with two other cats for three long years. She is an easy going girl whose biggest excitement is meal time. You cannot open her wet food fast enough. It would be so wonderful to find a foster home that could give this special girl some very deserving time in a real home.”
Maybelline requires one pill a day which is easily administered in a pill pocket and wet food twice a day. Furkids provides the medication, pill pockets and wet food.

About Furkids (provided by Samantha Shelton, Furkids’ Founder and Director)
“Furkids, Inc., founded in 2002, is a 501(c)3, charitable, non-profit organization that provides a cage-free, no-kill shelter for rescued cats and dogs where they can experience the best care in a loving environment until they are adopted. Each year, Furkids rescues, shelters, sterilizes, rehabilitates, and places hundreds of animals in permanent, loving homes.
Furkids is one of the most successful nonprofit animal rescue organizations in the southeast, operating the largest cage-free, no-kill shelter for homeless cats in Georgia and a no-kill shelter for dogs. Furkids cares for more animals on a daily basis than any other local organization, including the Atlanta Humane Society. Currently, Furkids cares for approximately 600 cats and dogs at the organization’s shelters, adoption centers and in its foster program. During its ten years, Furkids has rescued and altered more than 7,000 animals. The 2011 union of Furkids with SmallDog Rescue & Humane Society expanded operations to include both homeless cats and dogs.”
