Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter Announces The Summer Foster Program

Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter announces their semi-annual campaign to place pets in “foster” homes for the summer holiday. “Summer Foster Program” is on Saturday, July 13th and will be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.

All animals available for fostering can be taken home that day and can be returned on Thursday, August 1st if the foster family chooses not to keep the pet.

All foster homes will be required to fill out a foster and adoption application and leave a deposit. The deposit fee is $15 for a male cat, $25 for a female cat, $30 for a male dog and $35 for a female dog.

These fees will serve as the adoption fee if the foster family decides to keep the animal, if not, the fee will be returned when the foster family returns the animal to the shelter on August 1st.

Lafourche Animal Shelter Manager Kelli Toups stated, “This is a wonderful program to place animals in homes, giving families an opportunity to see if the pet fits with their family. We have dogs and cats that would love a summer break with you and your family.”

The Lafourche Animal Shelter is located at 934 Highway 3185, Thibodaux. For more information, call (985) 446-3532.
