SOCA-FBC is celebrating National Foster a Pet Month with the Petco Foundation and Skechers’ charity footwear collection, BOBS from Skechers, by recognizing our Local Foster Hero, Amy Vogelsberg, for stepping up and saving animal lives in Fort Bend County.

Amy plays a critical role in fostering cats and dogs, supporting other fosters, organizing and attending adoption events, collecting donations, assisting with animal medical care visits and appointments, marketing, and so much more.  She is a huge asset to our organization and our efforts to save the lives of companion animals in our community.

“Amy, is an amazing foster and volunteer who has helped saved thousands of pets lives. She goes above and beyond to help pets in need” said Rita Garretson, President of SOCA-FBC.

If you know Amy, please send her your congratulations, along with SOCA and Petco!

“It is an honor to recognize the Local Foster Heroes who are making a difference in their communities and demonstrating the lifesaving impact of fostering pets,” said Susanne Kogut, president of the Petco Foundation. “During the response to the COVID-19 crisis, we saw a significant spike in the number of people fostering pets. Our goal is to continue this trend, inspire more people to join the pet fostering movement and make pets sheltering in foster homes, versus animal shelters, the new normal. Because, if less than 2 percent of pet-owning households in the U.S. fostered one pet a year, we could eliminate unnecessary euthanasia in animal shelters tomorrow.”
