Picture this: you’re an American parent who—after a full day of listening to your children beg for a visit to a local drive-thru—is finally ready to give in to their wishes. At this particular drive-thru, however, you aren’t picking up ice cream or french fries—you’re picking up a furry foster animal. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Despite sweeping closures across the country, homeless pets are finding temporary housing faster than ever as animal shelters find new ways to arrange foster care for hundreds of pets at a time.
