1. Foster homes help adopters see pets at their best.
Some animals can handle a shelter environment better than others. Many get overly excited or too anxious to let their true personality shine when they’re in a kennel. In a foster home, pets can relax, so that potential adopters can get a good sense of how they’d be in a home.
2. Fostering pets is fun.
Playing with your foster cat is a great way to unwind and provide the attention they deserve. Plus, what's cuter then young kittens chasing their tails, or cuddling with sweet seniors?
3. Fostering is a great way to see if you're ready to adopt.
Adopting a pet is a big decision. If you’re not sure you’re ready to take that next step, this is a great way to test the waters. You’ll gain experience caring for a pet, so that when it’s time for you to adopt, you’ll do so with confidence.
4. Fostering is a temporary commitment with permanent rewards.
If you’re unable to adopt a cat or dog right now but want to open your space (and heart) to a rescue cat, look no further. Most shelters and rescue organizations offer a variety of foster opportunities that include taking care of a pet short-term or for the weekend.
5. Fostering saves more than one life.
Every time a shelter animal is able to leave the shelter for a foster home, space is created for another deserving homeless pet who needs a second chance — until eventually, we Save Them All.
