WHAT IS A FOSTER HOME?
A foster home is a short-term safe haven for a rescued dog. It is the most crucial yet ingredient in canine rescue. The more available foster homes, the more dogs we are able to rescue. For the dogs in animal control facilities, ashortage of space means death. Our dogs are placed in foster homes after being cleared by our veterinarians.
Briefly, the responsibilities of doggie foster care are as follows:
- A foster home must provide a safe, secure, stable environment
- Behavior and medial assessment done by the foster family and is critical to placement of the dog. It gives RDV the time to be sure that all the needs of a dog are met before they are put in homes. We must be sure that the dog is ready for his new owners
- Most importantly, the love needed to nurture those dogs back to their happy, healthy selves. Some dogs require special care, such as post medical attention, increasing weight or strength, socializing, building trust, exercise, and fun. Some dogs just require you.
