Top Five Reasons to Foster a Dog

You:

1. Save two lives – the life of the foster dog and the life of the new dog coming into the shelter who needs the space.

2. Improve adoptability of the dog being fostered through socialization and training in your loving home.

3. Reduce the risk of illness by getting the foster dog out of the shelter environment.

4. Enhance quality of life by eliminating the stress of the shelter environment.

5. Eliminate for the foster dog the risk of euthanasia due to lack of shelter space.

But if you say, I can’t because I will get too attached, remember this saying (author unknown):

I would rather cry watching them leave our home to go live a full, good life in a loving forever home of their own,

Than cry because no one stepped up for them in the shelter where they died all alone, scared, unwanted and unloved.
