Local pet-rescue group seeks foster families for 30 dogs

ORLANDO, Fla. —

A Central Florida-based dog-rescue group is searching for foster families to take in some needy animals.

Last weekend, Poodle and Pooch Rescue made an unusual out-of-state trip to a Georgia shelter to rescue 30 dogs, and the organization is searching for families to take care of the canines until they’re adopted.

Many of the animals are sick, but a local vet is helping care for them before placing them in foster care.

“To be a foster family all you need is a little bit of time,” rescuer Michele Wacker said. “We provide all the supplies; it doesn't cost you anything.”

Those who are interested in taking in a dog may call 321-277-3089 or email info@poodleandpoochrescue.org.
