Gretal and pups on Pet Pals TV: You can foster too!

March 1st, 2011

Gretal, a German Shepherd Dog, and her puppies show off the benefits  of foster care.

Gretal and her three pups were brought to IndyHumane by a good Samaritan. Through the Nonie Krauss Foster Care Program, Gretal and her pups were given a temporary home where they could nurse peacefully.

Fostering is a great way to get involved at IndyHumane. Opening your home to an animal in need provides a much-needed break from the kennel environment. Fostering is not only beneficial to the animal, it is rewarding to the families involved as well.

Most recently, Gretal and her pups made their TV debut on Pet Pals TV for a segment highlighting their story and their foster family. IndyHumane thanks Pet Pals TV for featuring Gretal and her amazing foster family.
