Remember our little Frodo? (Adoption story: click HERE)
Frodo arrived with TNR in October 2017 after being abandoned in an empty house in the Karen area. He was about 10-12 weeks old and was (literally) a handful of dog. Frodo was tiny and quite dehydrated when he arrived in the hands of TNR Trust.
Because TNR Trust does not only stick to its core of “Education, Sterilization and Vaccination”, we also help people if they come across abandoned/injured/stray dogs. This is an area that we have in common with the wonderful institution of KSPCA in Lavington.
Because Frodo was so scrawny, we put him into a foster home while we were looking for a good home for him. He needed a bit of extra Tender Love and Care to develop physically and mentally.
Fostering has benefits for both the foster family and the fostered dog:
FOR THE FOSTER FAMILY:
- It is an idea situation if you are only here temporarily, really want a dog but you are not sure how long you will be here or if you have money to transport your pet when you move again.
- You get lots of love, cuddles and
- You get a big deal of satisfaction, seeing the dog thrive under your personal care and, eventually, becoming the wonderful pet of a loving home
FOR THE DOG
- The dog receives a head-start: he/she can easily adjust to living with a new family.
- The dog can receive some 1-on-1 training in basic obedience
- Socialization with humans and other animals can be done in a safe environment
- “Potty- training” (aka house-trained) can be done before the dog goes to his/her new home.
