Fosters are saviors. This is not hyperbole. Without fosters we would not be able to continue to save dogs and the rescue would cease to exist.
Fostering most simply stated, is the process of providing a temporary home to a pet until an adopter is found. As a foster you open your home to a dog in need, providing food, love, care and shelter.
Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience for both you and the dog. By being a foster you can help save a dog’s life and support our mission.
The cold, hard facts on pet homelessness
There are about 70 million stray animals living in the U.S. Of this 70 million, only about six to eight million cats and dogs enter the nation’s 3,500 shelters every year, according to the Humane Society of the United States.
More than likely, dogs that get rescued, like any dog in similar circumstances, are just happy to be in a good home, happy to be part of a pack where they feel secure, safe and fed. They know their place in the pack order and that’s a comforting thing to dog.
When you foster you are actually saving two dogs, the one you are fostering and the one who you created space for by fostering.
Please consider helping us on our mission and helping save a dog deserving of life and a chance at a happy ever after. What could be more rewarding?
