Foster Informational Meeting, Tuesday, May 12th

Would you like to volunteer with Prairie’s Edge Humane Society?  The best way to help with the animals is to become a foster home!  If you have ever considered becoming a foster for homeless animals, now is the time! We are currently in need of fosters for dogs and female cats with kittens.

Please come to an informational meeting on fostering being held on Tuesday, May 12th from 6-7 pm at the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society Shelter facility at 680 Professional Drive, Northfield, MN 55057.  No pre-registration needed, just show up!

We will cover all aspects of fostering and honestly answer any questions or concerns.  This is a no pressure, no obligation way to learn more about the joys of fostering.  Plus we will provide refreshments!
