Fostering: a sneak preview

Often people wonder: why do you put the animals in temporary foster homes?

It is actually very logical: when the dog or cat gets put into a foster family, it has exposure to an actual home. This means lots more training can be done, the animal can socialize with humans and other animals, house training can be included, etc.

The results? Our dogs often have a head-start and can easily adjust to living with a new family.

The picture above shows an example of such interaction. The cat was owned by the foster family and the ‘TNR’ dog that was being fostered was perfectly able to interact with the cat thanks to the foster family putting in time and effort.
