Providing a temporary foster home saves lives. Animals that enter our shelter often need a quiet home to recooperate from illness and/or injury, are pregnant and/or nursing mothers, or need some special socialization and TLC. Fostering a dog may seem like a monumentous task, but it’s a very substantial way to make a difference. Everyone benefits: The foster family gets to spend time with a special dog or cat, and the shelter is able to make space for another animal. The foster animal gets a break from shelter life and has a chance at becoming a cherished pet. Once adopted (by the foster family or by a new family), the new owners get an animal that is better adapted to home life, and therefore has a better chance of remaining in the new home permanently.
