Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control (PBCACC) are looking for more foster parents to help with animals in need after a 40% intake increase in 2021.

Foster parents provide temporary housing and care for dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens until they are ready for adoption.

There are currently 936 animals under the care of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and more than 300 with Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.

These organizations are looking to add roughly 100 additional foster homes to their individual programs.
