Can't have a pet at home? Want one at school?!

The Allegany County Animal Shelter has a "Semester Foster" program which allows off-campus students to enjoy the companionship of an animal without the long-term commitment. Students will house the animal for the duration of the semester, but then they have the option to adopt the pet or to return it to the shelter. 

This is Coco, a female Beagle who was a stray. She is very sweet and is need of a home!
