Help A Pet In Need
What is Fostering?
When you foster, you agree to take a homeless dog/cat into your home and give him/her love, care, and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the animal is adopted.
Fostering an animal is a very rewarding awarding for both parties.
By taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you’re:
Giving the animal the time that he/she needs to be ready for adoption.
Socializing the animal to a home environment and possibly getting him/her used to being around other pets and different types of people.
Fostering also provides people who are unable to permanently commit to being a pet owner with an alternative.
Benefits of fostering for the animal
Fostering plays a vital role in the animal’s rehabilitation.
It improves his/her chances of finding a forever home.
Fostering builds up the animal’s confidence and gets him/her ready for a normal lifestyle.
Before you foster
Ensure that your landlord accepts animals on his/her property.
Ensure that you have a suitable area prepared for the animal to sleep/rest.
Ensure that you have adequate time for socializing the animal.
