How can I make a difference by fostering?

When you foster a dog you are taking a homeless dog into your home and providing them with the love, care and attention they need to thrive until they find their forever home. Many people who foster are concerned that they will never be able to let the dog go when the time comes for them to go to their permanent homes, and whilst there are many cases of ‘failed foster’ this is usually because you have formed a genuine connection with the dog in question and have therefore gained a valuable family member.

Foster homes also provide a new environment for dogs who are long term residents in kennels, or dogs who may be finding it difficult to adjust and may be starting to become disengaged. Moving such dogs into a loving home can make all the difference in their potential to achieve adoption in a permanent home as they become more socialised and receive some basic training. As a foster parent you will also be key in assessing the dog in a home environment so they can be matched perfectly with their new family.
