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 below shows Blitzen, a dog rescued off the streets in Nairobi. Because she came in with malnutrition and dehydration. A lovely foster parent has taken her in and gave her the Tender Love and Care she needed to become strong again.
