Fun, Frugal Way to Have a Furry Friend!

If you haven’t adopted a pet because they are too expensive, or because you are a college student whose living situation is unstable, please consider fostering for your local shelter. I’ve fostered kittens and dogs for Austin Animal Center, and have found it to be an immensely rewarding way of helping to keep the city no kill. The shelter pays for the pet’s food and vet care (i.e. the expensive stuff) – you just provide the cuddling and squee sounds (I made lots of those sounds thanks to the orange kitten below) until the cutie finds a forever family. The Austin Animal Center is currently WAY over capacity and desperately in need of fosters (and adopters, of course). You can sign up to foster here and look at all the cuties awaiting adoption here. Fostering is a great way for one person to make a massive difference.
