Mercer Animal Rescue is always in need of loving foster parents to help save more pets! Fosters are responsible for providing love and care to their foster pets until they find their furever homes. Fosters are also integral to the adoption process – fosters interview potential adoption candidates to find the right home for their foster pets. Supplies and vet costs are covered by Mercer Animal Rescue.
