Can Astrology Help Homeless Dogs find New Owners?

An estimated 3.1 million dogs join U.S. animal shelters each year, reports the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Although interest and placement in cat fostering increased during the coronavirus quarantine, they have since declined.

According to Mazza, "astrology became a way to explain that there are so many different types of foster opportunities." Adult dogs, pups, bond pairs, seniors, nursing mothers, and their litters are all available here.


Aries, as the first sign of the zodiac, enjoys taking charge. They would benefit most from having a high-energy dog or cat as a foster companion, as these animals are always up for exploring new territory and playing games like fetch. 

The bull needs a lot of hugs and food to keep going. A dog as food-driven and physically affectionate as them would make them the happy. 

Given their inability to choose sides, Geminis are better off with a bonded foster puppy couple. Each character needs their own!

Cancers are renowned for their nurturing nature and would make wonderful foster parents for a sick or nursing dog.  

Leos are strong and fiercely protective of their loved ones, making them ideal adopters for a shy rescue who just needs some time and room to open up. 

Virgos, being exacting and somewhat picky, are best served by a hypoallergenic, fully housebroken mixed breed that is obedient and maintains their toys in order. 

Libra, with its tendency to please others, is complemented by a canine that is not shy about expressing its needs.
