Fostering is the most effective way to reduce overcrowding in shelters by opening space for more animals to be saved.
Fostering increases a pet’s chance of getting adopted. Since foster families can learn more about the pet’s personality, they can teach them house manners and other behavioral tricks to help them get adopted faster.
Fostering improves a pet’s social skills. Many abandoned pets have been without a human family for months or even years. Fearfulness that shows up as aggressiveness is very common. But, being in contact with humans and strangers will help your foster pet learn how to socialize.
Fostering saves a pet’s life! With thousands of pets being euthanized by shelters across the country, fostering a pet can save their lives and give them a second chance in life.
