What Will I Need To Do As A Foster Parent? Foster homes are responsible for the daily care of the foster cat or dog, including feeding, exercising, socializing, grooming, reinforcing basic obedience commands, observing and evaluating general behavior and temperament, and of course providing patience, love and security.
Understand that all the animals are rescue animals and their behavior can be unpredictable. Be prepared for some adjustment issues in the beginning. It can be stressful for both you and the pet to be in a new situation. Be patient. If the going gets tough we will help out with advice and encouragement.What If I Already Have A Pet? In most cases, it`s fine if you already have a cat and/or dog, as long as your pet and the foster pet are both healthy and well behaved around other animals. Prior to arranging any foster home, an introduction will be done between your current animals and the animal we need to have fostered in order to ensure it will be a fit for the whole family.Will I Get To Choose The Cat Or Dog To Foster? We will show you the animals that are in need of foster homes and you can let us know your preference. If we feel that the animal is a good match for your home we will set you up as a foster home. We do our best to place an animal that fits your lifestyle. If you live in an apartment, you can ask for or an older animal who is low energy or a cat or dog in medical recovery who needs to be kept quiet. If you are an active family, you can ask for a dog who needs lots of walks and plenty of exercise. If someone in your family is comfortable working with dogs, they can help with some basic obedience or teach him some tricks.Do I Have To Be Home With The Animal All Day? Not necessarily. Many foster family members are employed outside the home and still provide a quality environment for the cat or dog. We do require that any time you are unable to directly supervise the foster animal, they must be confined to a small, secure area, preferably a training crate. This results in a safe secure place for the cat and dog and also protects your home and possessions.
