One of the greatest things you can do for cats and dogs in shelters is to give them a little time. Foster care programs help make up for the fact that shelters just aren’t big enough for the animals who need help, and allow an animal to stay alive long enough to make it to her new home.
This adoption vest, used by the organizations of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, helps fosterers easily add value to the already enormous service they are providing. What a conversation starter! Try walking a pooch wearing one of these eye-catchers and not getting asked what her story is. And those conversations may not only lead to a home for your foundling, but will help educate loads of people about the fact that animals in shelters need homes.
