Benefits for the Animal
Foster parents play a vital role by taking animals into their homes, providing basic care that includes exercise, food, grooming, and love, as well as special care such as medications, vet visits, socializing, or training. By providing a quiet, relaxed home environment for an animal, a foster home allows an animal’s true personality to shine through and ultimately makes the animal more adoptable. Foster homes can be ideal places for young animals not ready for adoption, such as puppies and kittens. As well, a foster home can provide a quiet place for an animal to recover from surgery or to have a litter and raise their babies in a stress-free environment.
Benefits for You
Fostering can provide a life-changing experience for you and your family. Often foster animals experienced trauma or hardship before coming into our care. Fostering gives you the opportunity to provide a safe haven and a place of recovery for the foster animal. By fostering you will be able to provide the foster animals with a safe living environment that will give them the chance to work through difficulties and give them the best chance of a successful adoption. Helping during this trying and transitional period in their lives can be incredibly rewarding and fulfilling for the foster parents involved.
