Why is Fostering Important?

Fostering not only gives dogs a loving place to stay while waiting for adoption, it also gives them a step-up in life.

Fostering dogs before they are adopted, not only allows a shelter to take in more dogs, it helps the dog adjust to the tough time before having a fur-ever home! Fostering allows them socialization and adjustment to new environments which allows them a greater chance of adoption into a loving family. It’s also a great way to see if adoption is for you, and to see how you can prepare yourself for a potential friend!

Is Fostering for Me?

Fostering is great for people who love animals, and is really for anyone who knows they can care for them – even temporarily.

Fostering is a great way to know and learn the responsibilities for an animal before finding a fur-ever friend! IT’s also a great way to truly learn more about a potential friend outside of a busy chaotic shelter! Not sure if your dream of having a mushy pitbull is right for your family and home? Fostering is a great way to find out!
