Calling all dog lovers who may have some extra love to share this Christmas. The Animal Rescue Foundation, or ARF, is looking for a few fosters for their "Home for the Holidays" program.

"To give them a taste of what it's like to be in a home so they don't have to be in a shelter for the holidays," said Ali Rellinger, ARF President. 

This is the 9th year ARF has done the program and they've been successful every year finding all the dogs a foster home. They still have 10 dogs to place.  
through Wednesday.  

"We've got a little bit of everything... We have pretty much all mixed breeds up here, they are all medium to large dogs, different colors and all different sizes," said Rellinger. 

They've got plenty of cats too. Big or small -- these kitties would make the "purrrfect" addition to the family.  

"So we always do a fun surprise adoptions... Like the parents have come in and picked out and the kids have no idea -- so the cat will come home on Christmas Eve," said Rellinger. 

The normal adoption fee for cats is $70, but right now there is a special rate of $25 until the end of the year. 

If you have other pets, the only requirement to foster is a vet reference to show your pets have had their shots. For more information give ARF a call at 251-586-5534 or head over to their location at 6140 Rangeline Road.
