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 Buddy from SNAP-2 IT. Here is information about Buddy from the SNAP-2 IT Blog:
"This friendly, broad-chested, smiley fellow with the perky ears and tail that goes *thump* *thump* *thump* was found in the Stone Mountain area by a Good Samaritan who recognized that he was homeless. The big-hearted animal lover took him to a vet’s office in the hopes that the vet could help Buddy. The vet agreed to let Buddy hang out for a while and also made sure that Buddy was healthy. He even neutered Buddy at no cost to help Buddy along the path to finding a forever home. Buddy is less than 2 years old, so he’s a young dog, and weighs around 70 pounds.
SNAP got the chance to meet Buddy and we instantly became huge fans! So now the four-legged Buddy is looking for a two-legged buddy…a forever buddy of his very own. SNAP has admitted Buddy into our adoption program, but we need your help. There are multiple ways that you can help:
Buddy needs a foster until we can find his forever home. Do you have room in your home for a big love of a dog? Buddy gets along with other dogs and has not had any potty accidents while he’s been with SNAP. If you can take Buddy as a foster, SNAP will cover the cost of his food and any vetting costs.
- Because we don’t have any vacancies in our foster homes, we are boarding Buddy at the cost of $10 a day. We would appreciate your contribution to offset Buddy’s costs!
- Please share Buddy’s picture with your friends. We locate countless new fosters and resources for SNAP through word of mouth.
- To meet Buddy, drop us a note (email@example.com) and remember to track where he will be on our Facebook page. You can also pre-apply to adopt Buddy online.”
