PHOENIX — Maricopa County Animal Care and Control has a special offer for folks around the Valley.

Today, people will have the chance to go and foster a dog for the Thanksgiving weekend.

The event is Wednesday from 11 a.m. through 4 p.m.

MCACC is asking for people to come and foster dogs that are 30+ pounds to give them a much-needed break from the shelter.

MCACC says the return time for the pups is Sunday, 11/27 from noon to 4 p.m., however, people are welcome to keep them as long as they want, as long as they communicate with MCACC.

This is how you can foster a pup:
