Be a Holiday Hero for a Shelter Animal

Do you have an extra place at the table this year? The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter is hosting the Christmas Holiday Heroes Foster Program with the goal of sending every eligible shelter pet home to spend the holiday with a family. Selected families will pick up their foster pet on Tuesday, December 22 and bring the little cutie back Sunday, December 27.
Foster periods like these can be life-saving to shelter pets because it gives them a chance to relax and mentally recharge. The shelter is often loud and busy, and it doesn’t give these kids much time to just be a normal pet. In your home, they’ll get to do just that! Run around the backyard, snooze on the couch or beg for just one more scrap from the dinner table. You can be the person that gives them that much needed break and some additional love and attention.
If you are at least 18 years old and interested in being a Holiday Hero to a shelter pet this Christmas, just fill out our Holiday Foster Survey online. For more information on the shelter or to see all of the pets available for adoption, visit
