Hillsborough animal hospitals fostering shelter animals to up adoptions

Hillsborough Co., FL-- Increase animal adoptions and decrease the euthanasia rate. That's the goal of the Hillsborough Animal Health Foundation as it launches a new pilot program called "AWAKE".

As a part of the new program, local veterinary hospitals will foster pets from the Animal Shelter until a forever family can be found for them.

"These are pets that are beyond the normal wait time and would have to be euthanized, [without] this fostering program," explained a foundation representative.
