So you may be wondering, what is fostering? Fostering a rescue animal involves taking an animal from a shelter or rescue and bringing it into your home and caring for it as if it was your own until the animal is ready for adoption. Often times, shelters have animals that cannot be adopted out for one reason or another, such as puppies that are too young to be vaccinated or animals that are recovering from medical procedures. There are also animals that need a little bit of extra help before finding their forever homes, like basic obedience training, or learning to trust people again, or medical conditions that would do better in a home environment. Shelters also have animals that are simply "unwanted" for one reason or another (owners were moving, or pregnant, or just didn't want a pet anymore or insert any other excuse for getting rid of a pet that was supposed to be a lifetime commitment). One thing is true for all of them, they would LOVE to finally have a family to call their own. That's where foster parents come in. We take animals and help them find their forever homes. Fostering animals is a big commitment and not one to be taken lightly. It involves dedication and hard work, but the reward is indescribable.
