THANK YOU for opening your home and taking the time to foster one of these wonderful pups! We could not save these innocent lives without people like you to give them that time they need to find a loving forever home. Fostering is truly a wonderful and rewarding experience, especially when you get that update showing how happy the pup is with his new family. This information is a basic helping guide for dog fostering so that you can get the best experience and your foster dog can build skills that will prepare him for life in a home and help him find his forever family more quickly. It will go over responsibilities for getting your foster dog exposure, training good skills, and some problem solving tips for common behavioral issues for rescue dogs.
