What does fostering a dog involve? Find out here…

When you foster, you agree to take a Wolfhounds’ dog into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the dog is placed with their veteran.

There are many reasons a dog might need foster care. Some of the most common include:

  • A rescue group doesn’t have a physical shelter and depends on foster homes to care for dogs until suitable homes are found.
  • A dog is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.
  • A dog is showing signs of stress such as pacing or hiding when placed with to many dogs.
  • A dog has not lived in a home before or has not had much contact with people and needs to be socialized.
  • Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course). By taking a dog   temporarily into your home you’re:freeing up a spot so the we (Wolfhounds) can take in another dog.
  • Giving your foster dog the time he needs to be ready for his new adventure with his veteran.
  • Helping us (Wolfhounds) learn more about the dog so he can end up in the best home possible.
  • Socializing the dog to a home environment and possibly getting him used to being around other pets and different types of people.
