We are always looking for foster homes, sometimes just for a few days in an emergency to get a dog to safety, other times until we can find a forever home and occasionally in special cases such as old age or illness, for the rest of the dogs life. We pay veterinary costs and usually the fosterer provides food, toys, bedding etc. unless we come to other arrangements.
Fostering is a very rewarding experience, there is no better feeling than knowing you have helped to save a dogs life and then prepared him to go off with a new family to love and look after him. Usually a few tears are shed though, most of them are happy tears, but of course they all take a piece of your heart away with them too.
