For the third year, the Roanoke Valley SPCA is participating in the Foster a Lonely Pet for the Holidays program.
The program encourages the community to become a foster for a pet in the shelter during the holiday season.
"It is a really good opportunity to get the pets out of the shelter for a while, and also to learn more about their personalities and their likes and dislikes," said Kathy Perdue, Director of Marketing for the SPCA.
There is an application process. For more information, contact the SPCA. If you do decide to foster, the SPCA provides supplies, like food, kitty litter and a crate.
