The #StayHomeAndFoster movement has swept across the nation, emptying out shelters, and attracting celebrities to do their part, like Crazy Rich Asians star, Henry Golding.

Stella Joins the Golding Family

“So today was a huge day at the Golding household, we became foster parents for this little pup Stella,” Golding wrote on Instagram, sharing pictures of his family meeting their new foster pooch.

Golding and his wife, Liv had some help finding Stella from friend, Olivia Munn. The chief strategist for on-demand pet care and dog-walking company Wag!, Munn connected Golding with Wag! and GreaterGood.org to join #StayHomeAndFoster.

Golding joins a growing list of celebrities who have chosen to foster a pet while social distancing, which includes Selena Gomez, Antoni Porowski, and Camila Morrone.

How you can #StayHomeAndFoster

StayHomeAndFoster.org connects people to shelters in their area looking for fosters. Prospective pet foster parents fill out a universal foster form that allows them to easily register at any applicable shelter.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented animal sheltering crisis in the United States and homeless pets are at risk of being euthanized,” Liz Baker, CEO of GreaterGood.org, said. “Fostering a pet is the solution, and StayHomeAndFoster.org makes it easy.”

In addition, scientific evidence has shown us that pets make us happier and healthier. Do your part and help rescues, pets, and your own mental health during this difficult time.
