Contra Costa Animal Services is launching a pilot Foster Program. We have had a thriving kitten foster program for several years and we are now expanding this program to include dogs and cats. The CCAS Foster program is a great way to help animals in need. The Foster person's job is not an easy one. Dogs may need special enrichment for behavior issues such as separation anxiety. Cats may have trust issues and need socialization. Depending on the animal and the time of year, the foster could be caring for one of our animals for a few days, weeks, or possibly months before that animal finds its new home.
