As much as we all love these wonderful furbabies, sometimes we aren't in a position to commit to adoption. Fostering a dog is a wonderful alternative and you could turn a dogs life around.
Much like with human fostering, fostering a dog literally means taking in a needy pooch for a certain amount of time. The time frame is entirely up to you and there is absolutely no obligation to keep your foster doggy. You would have said dog stay at home with you, take it for walks and give him/her love and affection, all the while we will be working hard to find them a forever home.
Fostering a dog does includes quite a few key benefits not just for the doggy in question but for yourself.
Foster dogs will soon start to feel safe and happy in a stable and loving environment, which allows them to become better dogs overall and makes them more suitable for more potential families.
Having contact with you as a foster parent also means we learn more about your foster dogs character and what sort of family is most suitable.
With your photo & video updates, their online exposure really increases, with more adoption enquiries typically following.
Perhaps you are considering adoption but do not want to yet commit? Fostering is a great way to see what it could be like to have a companion pooch in your family, in a non commital way. Fostering is always a win win for both parties and is extremely rewarding.
While there is no obligation for foster parents to adopt their dog, we are always delighted when this happens. If your foster dog is still available for adoption, then please let us know.
