TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima Animal Care Center has started its first foster care program for cats and dogs.  

According to a PACC release by nursing pets that are still too young to go up for adoption, or that are recovering from an injury or an illness, as the animals become stronger they become more adoptable.

Now that PACC has a dedicated veterinarian it is launching the new foster home program.  Right now PACC officials are looking for caring homes, a key point in a successful foster program. 

The program is flexible, said the release, there is everything from tiny orphans to senior animals, nursing mothers and animals recovering from surgery.  PACC is saying they will work with foster 'parents' schedules and lifestyle.

For those who are not able to foster, there is still a way to help.  PACC could use milk replacer, puppy and kitten kibble, and pate-style canned food for the animals in foster care.  To see a complete list of needed items click the following link - http://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/3ABSYH836EQXD/ref=cm_wl_search_2
