It's a partnership that's going to help animals across the region.
Wilfrid Laurier University has announced a collaboration with the Humane Society of Kitchener, Waterloo and Stratford Perth as well as Brant County SPCA.
The partnership would see animals in need of homes, be connected with Laurier students, staff and faculty and foster them.
Dogs, cats, reptiles and small animals are all in need of foster care.
All costs associated with fostering an animal is to be covered by the associated organizations.
In a release, Carleen Carroll, assistant vice-president: External Relations at Laurier says, "Laurier's partnership with the Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth and the Brant County SPCA provides an opportunity for our students, faculty and staff to making meaningful contributions to the community by helping animals in need."
"Fostering an animal is rewarding and provides companionship without a long-term commitment. It's a win-win experience." says Carroll.
"This year, more than ever before, the need for collaboration is front and centre," says Nadine Dwinnell, director of animal care at the Brant County SPCA. "Through partnerships, we can save more animal lives and enrich the lives of foster parents through animal companionship."
