Fostering is very important. It is the heart and soul of rescue. We truly cannot rescue without foster homes!
Fostering is also not always easy. Whether we get animals from owners or we get them from a shelter we truly don't know them until they have been in a foster home for a while. They act differently in the pound, they are scared and confused. When owners surrender them, they lie to us to get them out.
That being said, your job as a foster is to get to know the dog or cat, see if there are any issues that we need to address and we ask that you take pictures and give us updates so we can find a home faster. Should issues arise that make it uncomfortable in your home, we will move as quickly as we can to fix the issue or find another spot. This does not happen overnight. Whether it be training or whatever it takes to help the dog, we will get it done.
Sometimes we become too attached and cannot imagine our lives without our foster. That is normal and should you decide to adopt your foster, that is fine. We call that foster failure, but it is not a failure at all! In fact it is better than another change for the animal in your care.

We try to supply you with food and all your foster will need. We can't always as we are non profit. We always cover vet care. We may ask you to take your foster to a vet appointment or to an event.
