Knick Knack Pittie Pack is a foster-based dog rescue in South Central PA. They primarily pull pit bull type dogs from Central PA and Upstate South Carolina.
Crossroads Animal Hospital is a great animal hospital that runs CARE – Crossroads Animal Rescue, an adoption program for homeless dogs, cats and horses. While some of the adoption animals live at the clinic, others are in foster homes.
Foster homes can take in dogs undergoing heartworm treatment, recovering from injuries such as broken legs, and litters. Dogs and puppies over 4 months who may become more adoptable by becoming housebroken, socialized and working on basic obedience training can also be placed in foster homes. Animals in need of foster homes and opportunities to volunteer with the dogs and horses are often posted on CARE’s Facebook page.
Adoptable pets’ adoption fees include spay/neuter. Adult animals are up to date on vaccinations and younger puppies and kittens are in the process of receiving their vaccinations. Puppies and kittens also receive a discount on their remaining vaccines. It’s best to call ahead if you wish to meet a certain pet since the horses and some of the cats and dogs are in foster homes.
