An 11-month-old dog hit by car and rescued by the Arizona Humane Society is in need of some loving foster care.

Max, a poodle mix, was struck by a vehicle on Dec. 29 and suffered a fractured pelvis, according to AHS.

He's in need of eight weeks of care before being up for adoption.

AHS spokeswoman Bretta Nelson said he'll need cage rest and to be walked very little as he recovers.

Nelson said AHS currently has more than 500 foster families but is in need of more.

For those considering foster care, visit AHS' FAQs or sign up for a foster orientation. Orientation dates are Thursday, Jan. 9 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Sunnyslope Campus, and the same time and place on Thursday, Jan. 23.
