Shelter asks residents to let animals sleepover for Christmas

GEORGETOWN, Del. – –The Brandywine Valley SPCA is looking for families interested in having a sleepover with some four legged friends this holiday. Shelter officials say they’re looking for people to welcome a dog cat or kitten to spend the holiday in their home rather than the shelter. They say it’s a priceless gift to an animal who has lost everything. They add that letting the animal spend a night or two in a home helps the shelter learn about them which could increase their adoption chances.

“The animals in the shelter do act differently than when they are in a home, so by taking them for a night or two it allows that family to experience what the animal may be like in the home and share that with us and if and if they decide that it’s a great match they can obviously choose to adopt,” said shelter director Walter Fenstermacher.

If you’re interested in fostering any of these animals over the holiday you can contact the Brandywine Valley SPCA’s Georgetown campus at 302-856-6361.
