Helping others is part of the Christmas spirit and now a local animal shelter is asking you to give back by being a foster parent for the holidays. It's part of Texas Humane Heroes' 8th annual Home for the Holidays program that places dogs in foster homes from December 23-26.
There's 40 dogs at Texas Humane Heroes right now and all of them are up for adoption. This week, people are asked to open up your home for a few days to foster some pups so they don't spend Christmas at the shelter.
It's been a huge success in the past and has led to many dogs being adopted.
