ATTN Okaloosa County area - We need foster families!! We need two foster families to step up ASAP, pretty please! 7 Australian Shepherd mix puppies, only 5 weeks old, were dumped without their mother. Being so young they are highly vulnerable to illness in the shelter environment. We would like to send 3 to one foster home and 4 to another foster home. The foster time would be 3-4 weeks. (In order to be adoption available they have to have 2 rounds of puppy vacs and be at least 8 wks old. All medical care taken care of by the PAWS clinic - foster families need to be available to bring the puppies in for check ups during clinic hours.) If you can help, please contact Kennel Supervisor Tracy 850-243-1525 so she can arrange a time for you to pick them up. THANK YOU! Please note, they are too young to be adopted - we need foster families at this point. If you haven't fostered before, here is our foster family application: www.paws-shelter.com/?page_id=239 ...
