You would never quite think having “too many puppies” would seem like much of a problem, but that’s exactly the predicament that the Cochrane and Area Humane Society is facing.
As of November 6, the animal care organization had over 75 puppies in their care, and they were in desperate need of foster families to provide a place for these new pups to stay.

None of the puppies are yet ready for adoption, a Facebook post from the society stated, though anyone hoping to take a puppy or three home to foster for the next two to eight weeks would be able to do so without worrying about food, bedding, or medical care, as the humane society would provide all those necessities.
The post states that even spots in heated barns, garages, or basements would work for the pups, as they are in desperate need of additional space to keep the pups.
A few responsibilities would be expected of a foster, however.
“You would need to be able to bring your foster animals to the shelter for any scheduled vet check-ups and procedures (these occur Monday-Friday),” the post reads.
“The average foster time ranges from two to eight weeks and is flexible enough for most lifestyles. It makes a world of difference for the animals, and the shelter staff!”
And while the puppies may not be ready for adoptions yet — we expect that they will be eventually.
Potential foster homes can apply to take on a puppy at the Cochrane Humane Society’s website.
