Dogs to the Rescue III

Dogs and cats rescue us, so how can we rescue them?  Volunteer, adopt, donate...how about fostering a pet.  Here is a nice checklist to see if you are foster-ready!!

Foster criteria checklist

This checklist can help you determine if fostering is right for you.
  • Do you enjoy working with animals, and are you willing to spend time training dogs, or socializing cats?
  • Can you arrange to have your foster animals available for adoption fairs?
  • Are you okay with a cat or dog you may have grown very fond being available for adoption? (Fosters can be adopters too, of course!)
  • Do you have a secure environment for the type of animal you'd foster? Small kittens can get under some doors, and some dogs can jump or dig under fences.
  • Are you willing to have potential adopters meet the foster animal in your home, so they can see how the animal behaves in a home setting?
  • Do you have lots of love and patience for an animal adjusting to a new environment?
If you answered yes to these questions, you're the person we need to help keep these animals out of shelters and get them into permanent homes.
