Fostering FAQs

Will the foster animal have accidents in the house or cause damage?

Foster animals, like any other companion animal, may have bathroom accidents or chew on valuable items. Supervision and preparing a safe place in you home will help prevent most accidents. Crate training for dogs can be especially helpful to keep them safe and out of mischief.



Won't it be hard to give them back to the shelter when the foster is over?

More than likely, you will become emotionally attached to your foster animal but you can take comfort in knowing the incredibly important part you have played in helping that animal find the loving permanent home they deserve.


Worst case scenario they have already found their forever home with you and that's fine. We prefer our fosters not to adopt so that they can continue to foster for us but we completely understand that sometimes you just can't help falling in love.
