Athens-Clarke County Animal Services is seeking foster homes for the Independence Day weekend, according to the Athens Banner Herald.
Fireworks are traumatic for many animals, including pets, so the Animal Services department is making an extra push to get animals into foster homes that weekend.
The event is especially worrisome for the adoption center’s dogs; most of the shelter’s kennels are outdoors.
Foster pickups will be scheduled on Thursday and Friday, with returns set for Sunday and Monday. Animal Services will be closed, Saturday, July 4.
Fostered animals are current on rabies vaccine and spayed or neutered if they are old enough.
