When you foster, you agree to take a homeless dog into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the dog is adopted.
Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course). 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.
helping the shelter or rescue 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.
