National pet foster home network could end shelter euthanasia

Shelter overcrowding may no longer be an acceptable excuse for animal shelter euthanasia, and we have FosterSpot.com to thank for that.

FosterSpot is taking a stand against animal shelter euthanasia by creating a nationwide network of temporary foster homes in hopes to save millions of animal's lives. The fostering will reduce the amount of animals in shelters, so overcrowding will no longer be an issue. When overpopulation in a shelter does become an issue, the shelter or rescue group can reach out to FosterSpot, where they will find potential fosters.

Both fosters and shelters can register either their organizations or their list of animals in need of temporary fostering at FosterSpot.com. Shelters can list the specific needs of their animals on the website to ensure they get the care they need while being fostered. Fosters can also register to receive updates on animals in need of fostering, based on specific details such as the shelter name or certain types of animals that they'd prefer to foster. Also through the website, fosters can contact shelters to set up a foster and go over the details.

FosterSpot.com makes it so easy for animals to be saved, and all of the willing participants are appreciated so much. Why euthanize a perfectly healthy and happy animal when they can stay alive and bring joy to so many people's lives?

Please spread the word that this service is available to use so that everyone can take advantage of it and have the opportunity of saving a life. There is no need to euthanize shelter animals when there are so many easy alternatives.
