BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Companion Animal Alliance will be holding its “Home for the Holidays” campaign starting on Wednesday, Nov. 29 to find foster homes for dogs in its shelter.

“While fostering a dog may sound like just a fun way to spend the holidays, it is actually so much more than that,” said CAA Executive Director Jillian Sergio. “The time they spend with you offers these dogs time to relax and be themselves. You will be able to gain insight into their personalities, needs, and more.”

The campaign aims to find foster homes for 50 long-term shelter dogs that have been in the facility for more than 50 days, according to CAA.

“The idea behind our ‘Home for the Holidays’ foster program campaign is that the dogs that have been in the shelter for longer periods of time are prioritized to receive the opportunity to enter a home environment,” said CAA Foster Program Manager Collins Fairly. “By placing these dogs into foster homes, they can decompress and reach their highest adoption potential.”

This campaign will run until January 2, 2024. To foster a dog, all you have to do is complete the online foster application and orientation. Click here to complete the application.

CAA said once the application is completed you will be guided to an appointment with a foster program manager to choose a long-term shelter dog. The shelter said adoption fees will be
waived if people choose to adopt.
