MASA Rescue promotes fostering animals during self isolation


MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24)- Not being able to go out may seem ruff now, but, MASA Rescue has an option for people that they say is the cats meow. 

“Feeding them, and you’re playing with them, and they just make you laugh. they, they are so grateful to you for being there for them.” said The President of MASA Rescue, Tracye Gearhart.

She said they are always looking for people to foster animals; and now, more people are calling and asking how they can since they’re home.

“You can cry on your fosters paws and they understand it’s like they sense that. Emotionally they’re there for you when you’re down, they’re there for you when you’re up, they just make everything okay.”

She added that fostering is also good for the pets because it helps them find out more about their personality and better match them into a furrever home. 

“It’s in the best interest of the animal because it gets the animal  in a home environment where the foster can play with it and interact with it. It gives us an idea of the animals personality so we can match that animal to the best adoptive home.”

She said fostering animals is completely free, all you need to do is give MASA Rescue a call.  However, they only work with Midland residents. If you live in Odessa and still want to foster one of these four legged friends you can still call them and they’ll put you in contact with a rescue that works for you. 

“We just want you to provide the love and the care for the foster dog until we can get into an adoptive home.”
