BELLA SPCA LAUNCHES NEW SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLET TO SAVE ANIMALS
In 2010, Bella SPCA launched its Pet Adoption Program by posting on social media a picture of a Yorkshire Terrier named Sammie. The post was a plea to the public for volunteers to become part of Bella’s newly created Animal Foster Program and very quickly a foster home was found. A single post for a single dog was the starting point for a program that has since saved nearly 10,000 animals.
On Monday, April 2, 2018, Bella SPCA is going back to basics by launching a new social media page on Facebook called Bella SPCA Foster Connection. The new page, which is open to the public, is dedicated solely to matching people that want to foster animals with animals that need a foster home.
Bella SPCA does not have a physical shelter to house animals so every dog or cat adopted through its Pet Adoption Program lives with a foster family until an adoptive family is found. Bella SPCA has approximately 140 foster families in the metro that help save nearly 2000 pets each year but wishes to increase the number of available foster families dramatically.
“Bella has an incredible foster program now and is doing an amazing job finding great families to adopt great pets but there are so many more animals in shelters across our state waiting for a home,” says Bella SPCA Co-Founder, Eric McCune. “Bella has the resources and systems in place to save animals but needs more loving foster families to be ready to take an animal when it needs a place. This new page will be the perfect place for people that want to be part of saving animals to find animals that need their help. By increasing our foster family number, our goal is to double or triple the number of pets we save each year.”
Bella SPCA provides its foster families with all the essential supplies needed to foster, covers all expenses to ensure animals receive veterinary care while being fostered, and pets are adopted into homes already spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. Bella SPCA also provides access to a community of successful foster families to help answer questions and give advice.
If fostering a rescue pet is something you have considered or have done in the past, please visit https://www.facebook.com/bellaspcafoster and simply “like” and share the page. Animals needing a foster home will be posted daily along with a link to apply to become part of the program. Once an application is approved, new foster families will join an incredible group of people dedicated to saving lives in our community.
