The LA-SPCA is in the process of revamping their Foster Care Program. If you have fostered before or are interested in fostering please contact them. All Foster Care "parents" are required to attend a Volunteer Orientation and must be approved to be a Foster Parent. Fostering is a wonderfully rewarding job and a very
difficult and time consuming one at the same time. It is not always fostering kittens and puppies. It could be an adult dog or cat with special needs, or the puppies or kittens may need to be bottle fed around the clock.
Interested? Contact: email@example.com or 368-5191, ext 142.
Care Cadet Camp applications are now available. Children entering either 6th or 7th grade in fall 2007 are eligible for the three-week training camp held from June 11-29. To request an application, please drop by 701 Thayer St. (corner of Opelousas Ave. in Algiers), or send your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 368-5191, ext.
