Sometimes instead of fostering a child,foster parents choose to foster an animal. These foster parents take in shelter dog and cats that are ill, not socialized or not yet weaned and turn them into healthy, loving, adoptable pets. By providing temporary homes, foster parents enable shelters to take in more animals than they would otherwise have room for. So if you have the time, space and love to share with a foster pet, contact your local shelter or rescue group. If your application is approved, you’ll attend training sessions to learn how to socialize, house train and maybe even bottle feed your foster pet. The hardest part of fostering is giving up your foster pet. After you put all of the effort and love into fostering a pet, it’s very tough to let them go to a new owner. Think of the wonderful service that you provided to that pet. A little love goes a long way!
Remember, your pets count!
