“Fostering saves lives,” said Terri Hooks, SPCA of Texas Lifesaving Initiatives Manager. “Fosters are true heroes. Fostering helps these pets acclimate to a domestic life, learn vital skills, and showcase their true personalities, making them more appealing to potential adopters. Together, we can make a tremendous impact on the lives of these deserving animals, one foster at a time.”
Saturday’s scavenger hunt features three dog-friendly locations where humans and their buddies will search for Golden Paws to win incredible prizes and enjoy food and/or drink specials created specifically for this Borrow-A-Buddy event.
