SAN ANTONIO – Several local animal welfare organizations are seeking temporary fosters to ease an influx of pets arriving at their facilities.
Animal Care Services (ACS) and other animal welfare partners have been flooded with pets, including puppies and kittens.
Last week, the Animal Defense League transferred 114 pets from ACS, while San Antonio Pets Alive took in over a hundred animals.
While some animals have been given temporary homes, the organizations say the situation is still dire.
Fosters are urgently needed for temporary care of pets as they become eligible for adoption.

KSAT reported Wednesday morning that ACS had lowered adoption fees and extended its hours to help encourage adoptions.
Fosters will receive food and other supplies for other temporary pets, including medical care and vaccinations, a press release said.
