FOSTER because the best DOGS are RESCUED
Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have by taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you’re:
> freeing up a spot so our center can take in another dog.
> giving your foster dog the time he needs to be ready for adoption.
> helping our center learn more about the dog so he can end up in the best home possible.
> socializing the dog to a home environment and possibly getting him used to being around other pets and different types of people.

Why do we need your help to foster a dog?

There are many reasons a dog might need foster care.
Some of the most common include:
-A puppy is too young to be adopted and needs a safe place to stay until he or she is old enough to go to a forever home.
-A dog is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.
-A dog is showing signs of stress such as pacing or hiding in the shelter.
-A dogis 100% ready for adoption and best place to be is in a home enviroment.
-Our center is running out of room for adoptable dogs and rely on foster homes until a space frees up.

Benefits to animals

Animal fostering is an important role. It helps to play a vital part in the rehabilitation of animals and helps improve their chance of finding a new home.
Many animals that we take in have either suffered or are not used to the care and affection that they deserved. Living with a foster family helps to provide them with one-to-one care.
Allowing them to build up their confidence and get used to a normal lifestyle.
Other animals don’t well in an animal centre environment. This is where we need people to take them in to provide them with a real home, even if it is only on a temporary basis.

Benefits to people

Fostering animals can also be a pleasurable experience. It’s rewarding to know that you played a key part in the rehoming process when a foster animal is successfully rehomed.
It also gives people who would normally be unable to take in an animal long term due to other commitments, with an alternative.
