You’ve heard of speed dating and all the crazy stories that come with it, but did you know there’s an upcoming animal companion option in Hampton Roads?
The Portsmouth Humane Society is running an emergency pick up event in a fun and exciting way. They need temporary or permanent homes for 30 dogs, 10 cats and several litters of kittens, according to a Facebook post.
It’s no secret that most shelters are at capacity, and adopters and even foster families are needed more than ever.
On July 29 from 5 to 8 p.m., you can participate in Foster Speed Dating!
If you are interested in participating, you can fill out a “dating profile” here, and three potential host families will be matched with you to meet based on factors such as your lifestyle and the amount of space you offer.
Once you have entered your information, a member of the shelter staff will contact you and schedule a specific time for you to come and meet some furry friends.
If you find one you love, you can make a difference and bring it home. If you really fall in love with them, you can even adopt them.
According to the Portsmouth Humane Society, fostering is free. They provide the supplies needed to care for the animal and all necessary medical attention.
