Bond County Humane Society In Need Of Foster Homes

The Bond County Humane Society is seeking foster homes for their animals. Humane Society Representative Rachel Hunsdorfer said right now the center is at maximum capacity for dogs, which is a problem because two more dogs are in need of homes with Animal Control or they will soon be euthanized. She told us what is involved in fostering an animal.

“You let the dog or the cat live in your home with you. We take care of the vet expenses, we can provide food, we provide a crate, we can provide whatever,” Hunsdorfer told WGEL. “The dog or cat, they would have to be pretty much inside animals in order to be considered for being a foster, but we take care of the expenses, and then the foster has to be willing to make the animal available for adoption.”

Hunsdorfer said the center does not have any foster homes available for their animals at this time. She said with the help of fostering, the Humane Society could help many more animals and not have to turn away animals when they’ve reached capacity.
