SPCA of Brazoria County urges residents to foster, adopt animals amid coronavirus outbreak

SPCA of Brazoria County is asking for resident’s help to clear the shelter of animals in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a Facebook post they say:

It is a predictable pattern during times of uncertainty adoptions will slow down and intake will increase. Because we are also trying to manage the health needs of our own staff, we are hoping to be able to bring on an additional 50 emergency fosters of the next few weeks that can take home a pet for a few days or weeks once we reach critical capacity since our staffing availability will likely fluctuate.

We are looking for fosters that are willing to take in all ages, sizes and temperaments of dogs and cats, but those willing to help dogs over 40 pounds, animals with medical issue, and newborn kittens are most needed. The SPCA provides all medical supplies, crates, and food for foster animals. If you’re interested in joining this emergency foster network, please email FosterSPCA86@gmail.com.

People who can’t adopt or foster at this time can make a donation. We are currently working to raise $10,000 to stock fostering supplies and prepare for the coming seasonal influx of kittens. Donations can be made at https://spcabc.kindful.com/.

Critical items can also be purchased directly from the shelter’s Amazon Wish List and shipped directly to the SPCA. Most needed items are: crates and carriers of all sizes, sturdy dog leashes, and kitten milk replacer.
