Rescue Ranch announced this week the creation of the Rescue Ranch Foster and Adoption Program.
The program is accepting applications for foster families while it awaits adoptable animals. For now, no animals in the program will reside at the Ranch but instead will go into foster care.
The nonprofit will work with local shelters and other animal nonprofits to rescue dogs and cats to be adopted out. In the future, the nonprofit hopes to add farm animals, bunnies, hamsters and exotics. The adoption fees will include vaccinations and spaying/neutering to promote responsible ownership.
“This is such an exciting day for us,” said Rescue Ranch co-founder Krissie Newman. “When we dreamed of starting the Ranch one of our goals was to add a foster/adoption program to our list of offerings. We currently have over 80 animal ambassadors that are permanent residents at the Ranch and help us with animal education programs, but we know there are so many other animals in need of the loving homes they deserve.
“The pandemic has hit so many families hard and many animals have suffered as well,” she added. “We’re honored to help find homes for these impacted animals and place them with safe and caring foster families while they await their forever families.”
