Looks like the stars of Netflix’s "Queer Eye" are transitioning to the Austin life just fine.
Animal shelter Austin Pets Alive! on Tuesday made public that one of the stars, food guru Antoni Porowski, has become a foster parent.
Feeling lucky to have this temporary Austinite @antoni fostering Neon to help us during this time! If you'd like to be fab & help as well please apply to foster a dog or cat here: https://t.co/qrmjBjT1N9 pic.twitter.com/mBO9wZ5JuV— Austin Pets Alive! (@austinpetsalive) March 17, 2020
"It’s very important for us to support our local shelters because they’re getting a lot less foot traffic during this crazy ol’ pandemic," Porowski said in the video. "Whether you’re ready to adopt, I encourage you to do that and if you can’t commit to adopting, then I would encourage fostering as well."

According to their website, Austin Pets Alive is aiming to get at least 50% of its animals in homes, as there are fewer people available to care for the dogs and cats currently in their possession.
Those interested in becoming a foster can find more information here. All fosters must apply online prior to coming to the shelter to pick up an animal.
More information about how the animal shelter is preparing for the coronavirus can be found on Austin Pets Alive’s website.
