BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Officials at the Kern County Animal Service want you to help them save the lives of many four-legged furry animals by becoming a foster parent.
In the past six weeks, the shelter has received hundreds of puppies and kittens that are too young to be adopted out and must be placed in foster homes until they are old enough to be adopted.
Currently, the shelter is seeking homes for approximately 86 puppies and kittens under the age of two months.
If you want to help them out by becoming a foster parent, you can contact the Kern County Animal Service or stop by the Bakersfield Shelter at 3900 Fruitvale Avenue.
