CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Chesapeake Animal Services is in need of fosters this kitten season.
Last year, they took in 800 kittens, many of which needed round-the-clock care to keep them healthy.
Some kittens need to be fed every few hours.
This year the shelter says Adams Outdoor Advertising wanted to help bring awareness to fostering animals, and donated billboards that drivers can see all over Chesapeake over the next few months.
“We brought them our problem and said ‘look, dogs and cats don’t always belong in the shelter and we need to help them get out of the shelter.’ And the creative team put together really adorable billboards,” said volunteer coordinator Dyanna Uchiek.
Volunteer coordinators say they also are hoping to push dog fostering too, so they can learn how the dogs behave outside the kennels and see how their behaviors change.
The shelter says they provide the supplies and medical care during a time an animal is fostered, you just have to provide a safe and loving atmosphere for the animal.
