Eagle Scout Project

Gustavo Osuna, the project leader, was assisted by boy scouts and parent advisors Jarrett Schmidt, Scott Schmidt, Kenny Koniarski, Paul Koniarski, Jim Patch, Trenton Taylor, Calvin Taylor, James Taylor, Ricardo Osuna, Gustavo Osuna Sr.

From 9/7/14 to 11/9/14 the boy scouts of troop 151 from Chula Vista have been working to install the new royal blue privacy slats that are seen in the dog interaction area. The new addition to the animal center make the interaction area look cleaner and most importantly prevent dogs from fighting with the fence in between allowing more socialization and adoption interactions to occur simultaneously.

All funding, materials, and installation was done solely by troop 151. The Chula Vista animal care facility thanks this troop 151 for their hard work and making the shelter a bit better to be in for homeless dogs.

Foster Care Program | Become a Foster Parent!

The Foster Care Program is designed to give animals, who are too young or not ready to be adopted, a chance to thrive in a loving, temporary home until they can be adopted through the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility.

What does the program do?

  • Foster parents provide temporaryChula Vista Animal Care Facility Kittens  specialized care that certain animals need.

Which animals go into foster care?

  • Baby animals that are too young to survive on their own.
  • Young animals that need to grow enough to be spayed or neutered, then be put up for adoption.
  • Animals being treated for medical reasons or those recovering from medical procedures.

What does a foster parent do?

  • Foster parents provide animals with care, attention, housing and love.
  • Foster parents bring the animals back to the Animal Care Facility for Chula Vista Animal Care Facility Puppy appointments and check-ups.

What is provided to foster parents?

  • All supplies necessary to care for the animals are provided, including food, baby formula, medicine, heating pads, pet carriers, etc.
