LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Animal Foundation is looking for people to foster shelter dogs during the Thanksgiving holiday week, so the pups don’t have to spend the holiday alone.

Now through Nov. 27, the shelter is inviting interested foster families who aren’t traveling for the holiday to pick out a medium or large dog to take home for Thanksgiving dinner and a family-filled holiday vacation.

The Animal Foundation will provide all the supplies as long as fosters commit to a full week of care for their holiday shelter pet.

If foster families choose to adopt the pet they host or if they find someone who is interested, the shelter will waive the adoption fee.

“No one should have to spend Thanksgiving alone, especially shelter dogs,” said Christi Dineff, Director of Lifesaving Programs for The Animal Foundation. “If you have room for a special guest this Thanksgiving, there are hundreds of dogs in our shelter who would love to cozy up with you and your family over the holiday period.”

Those wanting to foster are encouraged to contact The Animal Foundation’s foster team via email at foster@animalfoundation.com to fill out an application.
