Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter looking for foster families

MASON, Mich. (WILX) — Spring is fast approaching, but it’s already proving to be a busy year for Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter (ICACS).

They say they have lots of animals to care for, but not much kennel space left.

In order to help clean up some of the kennels and make room for more cats and dogs looking for their forever homes, ICACS is looking for foster families and is offering a special dog adoption offer. .

“If long-term adoption isn’t right for your home, temporary placements through our foster program are a great option,” said ICACS Director Heidi Williams. “It’s so gratifying to know that you’re not only helping the animal you’re sheltering by giving it personalized care while waiting for its forever home, but also helping to reduce overcrowding at the shelter.”

Becoming a foster family is easy. All you need to do is complete an application and attend a brief orientation session at the shelter. Animals are placed with a foster family as needed. All necessary information and supplies will be provided to the host family.

You will find the application form at this page of the ICACS website.

To promote dog adoptions and make room for more shelter admissions, ICACS is running a special dog adoption offer through Saturday, March 19. During the special, all dog adoption fees are reduced to $50. Adoptable dogs will have been neutered or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated depending on their age. Dog licenses must always be purchased.
