OBOI: Fostering Animals

Monday, March 18, 2019

Learn about fostering animals from Otter Creek Animal Shelter and foster parents.

All ages are invited to the Independence Public Library to learn more about fostering animals with Rhonda Reid from the Otter Creek Animal Shelter and long-time foster parents Pete and Terry Gaumer, along with a few animals. Reid will explain the expectations of the Otter Creek Animal Shelter Foster Program. Their goal is to provide an interim, in-home environment for pets who need special attention or a break from the shelter environment. These temporary homes could be for just a few days, up to a few months. Gaumers will share their personal experiences fostering several animals over the past three years.

Join us on March 18 at 6:30 pm in the Community Room as part of the One Book One Independence programming. No registration is required. Call the library at 319-334-2470 or visit the One Book One Independence webpage here for more information.
