Operation Pets Alive! appeals to public to adopt a pet before time runs out
The Conroe Animal Adoption Center (CAAC) and Operation Pets Alive! (OPA), a local area nonprofit animal rescue, have put out an urgent call to save the lives of countless animals facing a cruel fate.
“The shelter is currently over-capacity,” said Marcia Piotter, president of the Operation Pets Alive! organization. “OPA is reaching out to those in our community to help avoid euthanasia of healthy, adoptable dogs. Many of these are longer-term dogs, who – through no fault of their own – have been overlooked for adoption, and whose lives are now at risk.”
Operation Pets Alive is looking for foster families to take a pup into their home and care for it. If the pup is eligible for one of OPA’s Transport Programs, the duration of time in foster care could be as short as two weeks. Other pups will be local adoption candidates through OPA, and families just need to bring the pet to Adoption Events offered each weekend, and field any adoption inquiries that come from potential local adopters.
“When you foster for Operation Pets Alive!, you will not be alone,” said Piotter to people considering fostering an animal. “With more than 150 active fosters at any given time on their team, they will help guide you through your fostering experience. OPA supports all foster families with necessary veterinary services, and if needed, food and supplies for your foster pet.”
To help interested parties save a pup in need, Operation Pets Alive! will be at the Conroe Animal Adoption Center located at 407 Sgt. Ed Holcomb Blvd, Conroe, Texas 77304, this Thursday, March 8, from 9:00 a.m. until 12 noon, and also from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. OPA invites interested members of the public to come to the shelter and meet the dogs needing fosters, giving them an opportunity to observe the pets at play and select a pup that is a good fit for their family and home situation.
“If you have any questions about fostering, please feel free to email us at email@example.com, or visit our website at www.operationpetsalive.org,” said Piotter.
