FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!
S.P.A. is in URGENT Need of Loving Foster homes.
We are limited in how many animalsí lives we can save by how many foster homes are available. On occasion, in emergency situations, we pay to board cats and/or dogs at our veterinarianís office when our foster homes are full and there is nowhere for the animal to go. This is not only very costly but not fair to the animal waiting for a loving, forever home, especially when days turn into weeks.
Fostering a rescued animal in your home provides a caring environment for the animals we have rescued until they are adopted to a loving, forever family.
Fostering requires dedication, patience, and commitment. It is, however, an extremely rewarding experience for the entire foster family.
The benefits of fostering a pet are numerous. The animal has an opportunity to live in a more personal and loving setting, as opposed to shelter life.
It also provides a safe and secure place where the petís true personality traits can emerge. This observation can be helpful in determining the best environment for placing that particular animal. Most people want to know all they can about their prospective pets before adopting, and families who foster can provide that information.
Another important benefit to animals in foster care is the love, individual attention, and training (if needed) they receive. Fosters experience the joy of knowing the animal will get placed in a good home as S.P.A. is very selective as to where they place each and every rescued animal.
Fostering also provides an opportunity for people to experience various animal breeds, which can assist them in making an informed decision prior to adopting an animal.
If you have other pets in your home and wish to foster an animal, it is important to make sure your pets are current with their shots. You need not worry that your animals and the foster pet will have trouble getting along. In many cases, the transition takes place in a short period of time as the animals learn to live and play together. In short, your life can continue as normal with the addition of a foster pet.
