One of the greatest needs for animal rescue groups is 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.

I am going to start featuring pets in the metro Atlanta area that that need a foster home. On One of the current "foster pet” needs is Bunny from Furkids. Bunny is a seven year old female gray and white tabby with special medical needs who is looking for a permanent foster home. Here is more about Bunny from the Furkids’ Facebook page:
“Sweet Bunny has been living at the shelter for a while now. She is loving, friendly and very calm. We would love to see Bunny live out her remaining time in a home where she can relax and feel secure.
She is partially blind and has kidney issues which requires medicine in the morning and at night, but that's easy. She is use to taking it, and you only need to crush it, mix with water and squirt it into her mouth by syringe.
We supply all food, medicine and medical needs for Bunny. All you would need to supply is a home and TLC a special girl like Bunny so desperately needs.
If you are interested in fostering Bunny, please email email@example.com.”

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.”
