Orlando pet rescue relies on foster parents during pandemic
Foster Care Coordinator, Susan Russell, said nearly every day someone is dropping off a new litter. When the pandemic started the rescue closed it’s doors to volunteers and to potential adopters. Foster volunteers were able to take in most of the cats and kittens that were left without a home. “When the pandemic started and it was my summer, it was the perfect opportunity to get involved,” DeHart said. Russell says putting young feral kittens in foster care allows them to grow, get healthy and become socialized.
