Fostering. Saves. Lives.

Fostering saves lives. Literally. When animal control is overcrowded, they often do not have the option of turning away surrenders. The result is euthanasia for the pets that have been there the longest. Fostering not only saves that pet, but helps other pets in the shelter.

Fostering provides a safe place for animals in need, and it can also be a rewarding experience for the people who foster them. Here are three reasons why fostering pets is a great option for people who want to make a difference.

First, fostering a pet gives people an opportunity to get to know an animal and learn about its personality before making a long-term commitment to it. This is helpful for people who are considering adopting, as it allows them to get a better sense of the animal’s temperament and needs. Information on the pet's personality is also invaluable to the shelter, giving other adopters more data to make a good decision. It also gives the animal a respite from the shelter and a chance to get used to living in a home environment, which can make the transition to a permanent home much easier.

Second, fostering a pet can provide companionship and comfort to those who need it. For those who may be living alone, having an animal companion can provide emotional support and a sense of connection, not to mention the laughter that pet antics can bring. Even temporary fostering can give a sense of purpose and increase feelings of self worth.

Finally, fostering pets is a great way to give back to the community. Providing a temporary home for animals that need it, helps save lives and make sure that the animals have a safe place to stay until they’re adopted. Food, supplies and veterinary care for the pet is generally (and definitely with AnimalCity) covered when fostering. That means that all that is needed is a little space and copious amounts of love.

Fostering pets is a great way to help communities and make a difference in the lives of animals in need. It’s also a rewarding experience that can provide comfort and companionship and laughter. If you’re looking for a way to make a difference, consider fostering a pet today!
