Fostering a dog
Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course)
Just by taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you’re: freeing up a spot so the shelter or rescue can take in another dog. giving your foster dog the time he needs to be ready for adoption.
As a foster carer not only do you get to help save a dog, but you also get to help find a perfect home for him, all the while learning more and more about dogs as you go. You can be a home owner, a renter, a big family, or a single person. You can be highly experienced or have very little experience. Got your own dog(s)? Awesome! Almost all foster dogs will love the company and your dog(s) will get the benefit of extra socialisation.
We found that people or families that are not sure if they can commit to a dog find fostering a great way to help them make a decision. Just remember that fostering is temporary and there is no long term commitments and if you love your foster pet you can also apply for adoption.
