June is National Foster Appreciation Month, and in this month’s episode of EPAS Unleashed, we chat with our Foster Coordinator, Valentin Garcia about all-things fostering! All your foster questions are answered here, and learn a bit about how this program came to be. Thank you to all of the amazing people that open their homes to a shelter pet in need!

About Valentin Garcia

Valentin joined El Paso Animal Services about thirteen years ago when he started as an Animal Care Attendant. He worked his way up through the department through various divisions, including Animal Protection and Operations, before becoming our Foster Coordinator in 2016. Valentin helped build the Foster program from being just a handful of staff taking home bottle-fed kittens at the end of the night, to a program that organizes and oversees over 2,000 animals in foster care.
