"Fostering a dog is not a lifetime commitment - it is a commitment to saving a life."
Finding quality foster homes is a struggle for any animal rescue. A foster home could be the difference between life and death to an animal in need. Fostering and sending an animal to its loving forever home is a very rewarding experience.
By temporarily fostering an animal in need you are: freeing up a spot so that the rescue can take in another animal; helping the rescue learn more about the animal so it can be placed in the best home possible; helping your foster get ready for adoption by socializing the animal to a home environment and possibly getting them used to being around other people and pets. Being a foster parent can be challenging but it’s gratifying to know that what you are doing makes a huge difference in the life of an animal.
Our goal is, first and foremost, to make sure that our foster dogs will make good house pets for the general public as they are the primary adopters. The observations of our foster families, as to the activities and behaviours that the foster dogs exhibit while in foster care, are invaluable in trying to find the perfect home for that dog. That perfect home may be a working ranch, an active dog sport home or a more laid back pet home.
