Regina’s stray cats are in need of a temporary home for the time being.
The Regina Humane Society is looking for Foster families as it enters “Kitten Season;” a time which animals tend to breed more, creating an influx in the animal population.
Spokesperson Bill Thorn describes what foster families would do.
“What we need them to do is to look after some of the animals that come into the shelter that are better off to be outside of a shelter environment,” Thorn says. “I`m talking about very young animals that are simply too young to be adopted.”
Thorn says this isn’t the only time foster families are needed.
“The other role the foster’s play, which we see an increase in the summer time, is animals that are injured in some way or recovering from some illness,” Thorn says. “It could be everything from some sort of disease that they’ve got to an animal that’s been hit by a car, and has had a broken leg or an amputation, and they need some quiet kennel time to recover from that.”
There is no cost to the foster family for housing the pet, as food and supplies are provided by the Humane Society.
Anyone who would like more information can contact the Humane Society, ways to do so can be through phone: (306) 543-6363, or by visiting the Regina Humane Society website.
