Palm Beach County’s animal shelter is looking for people either to rescue or foster cats with upper respiratory infections.
The shelter has 22 cats with the infection, which is similar to a cold, said a shelter spokeswoman. Some of the cats can go in pairs, so the shelter is seeking at least 18 foster or rescue homes. Those who foster the cats would be asked to do so for 10 to 14 days.
Cats that are either fostered or rescued should heal faster because the shelter environment can be stressful, the spokeswoman said.
She added that the shelter would provide everything necessary to foster the cats including food, medicine and a crate.
Anyone who is interested should contact Kelly Diegert on Friday or Saturday or Suzy Dannelevitz on Sunday. Diegert can be reached at at 561-233-1219 or email@example.com and Dannelevitz can be reached at 561-233-1252 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control shelter is at 7100 Belvedere Road, just west of Florida’s Turnpike, in suburban West Palm Beach.
