The Humane Society of Stratford-Perth and Kitchener-Waterloo is making an urgent appeal for foster homes for 16 large breed dogs.
Both sites of the humane society have 21 large dogs in their care, there is a pressing need for new fosters who can provide care and attention for the animals.
Volunteer fosters help provide a temporary home for animals waiting to be adopted and are provided with training, food, supplies and medical care.
CEO Kathrin Delutis says playing the role of a foster helps when animals need it most and help in their journey to finding their forever home.
More information including becoming a volunteer foster is available from the Humane Society website.
