Foster homes provide second chances to homeless dogs. Fostering means welcoming a senior dog into your home for an indeterminate period of time. They will be a loved and cared-for member of your family until a carefully-screened permanent home is found.
There is no conceivable way that shelters can take in and care for the number of stray and owner-surrendered animals that come through their doors. There is simply not enough space. By fostering, you save two lives – the dog you foster and the dog who now has an available kennel at the shelter.
Sometimes people think that the only way to really help a rescue is by fostering. Although fosters are an integral part of any rescue organization, there are so many others ways you can help. We need volunteers with a variety of skills to help with fundraising; at adoption events; to write press releases and grants; to transport animals; to work with the media; to do home visits for potential adopters; to call references; and in many other areas.
