Fostering an animal is a very rewarding experience and in most cases, you are saving that animal's life! It not only saves that rescue's life, but allows us the space and resources to go save another from the shelter or from a neglectful home. Fostering is also a more flexible option than adoption. It’s temporary, and you can choose how you do it. Perhaps you prefer to foster senior pets, special needs, or maybe only puppy litters during puppy season. You can foster shorter periods as a vacation foster, during health recovery, or transport.
Foster parents also play an important role in socializing and preparing animals for their forever home. You provide a safe and loving environment with adequate attention and interaction. With great patience and understanding, You will be the first to find out about his unique personality and special qualities which helps the rescue find the best possible home.
Shelters can be extremely stressful conditions so make sure he’ll have a designated space, usually with a crate. This should be a quiet, calm area where he can decompress and relax.
