Just One Dog, Just One Life

The shelter’s newest enhanced foster program, Just One Dog, Just One Life, aims to empower residents into taking a dog into their homes and finding the best match. Dogs eligible for fostering include those dogs who have been at the shelter more than seven days, dogs who weigh 35 pounds or more, and are already altered and vaccinated.
