Of course, if you decide to join this foster a furry companion program, you can choose your own creative name for these cuties. This provides a safe and easy alternative for what you once had with your live furry companions. Once you bring one home you will immediately feel the emotional warmth and comfort, they can give you. The Robotic Furry companion sitting on your lap, lying on your floor, wagging their tails, or the sound of their purr or bark can lift your spirits and create a feeling of joy that can increase as you spend more time with your new friend. This program is a foster program with the intent to adopt.  There is no fee.  What is needed is an expression of interest to myself at the contact information below and which companion you might be interest in a cat or a dog.  Please contact me by February 28th if you are interested in this Spring Pilot Program. Looking forward to hearing from you and getting your thoughts on this program.

(If you are interested in and are able to care for a live furry companion, please contact the Director of Pike County Humane Society at 570-296-7654 or a Humane Society in your area).
