Are you ready for a Spring Fling? The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) invites the public to foster a medium-to-large adult dog for the weekend. After this “spring fling,” the family can decide to either bring the animal back to the shelter or make them a permanent member of the family!

First, get a head start on the process by previewing the adoptable dogs at Then, starting Friday, March 3, 2023, the community can visit WCRAS to meet the available dogs that they’re interested in and spring into action by fostering for the weekend. After spending the weekend together, if the spring fling turns into a long-term commitment, it can turn into an adoption. Just let us know by 6 p.m. on Monday, March, 6.

“If you aren’t sure about a commitment, this is the absolute best time to come to the shelter,” says Animal Services Director Misty Valenta. “Our Doggy Day Out program has been a huge success, letting us know the community wants to give the dogs a chance away from the shelter short-term. We want to expand on that and let them know it can be for the weekend, and if it turns into true love, adoption’s an option.”

The Spring Fling is an extension of the WCRAS Foster Program, a lifesaving program that focuses its efforts on saving the lives of the shelter animals by finding them temporary placement in loving homes.

The shelter is always in need of foster homes for kittens, puppies, and medium-to-large dogs. Each medium-to-large adult dog eligible to have a Spring Fling will be seven months and older, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped.
