Benefits of Fostering

Fostering is a 2 way street, there are benefits for you and the animals and these benefits even extend to your family and the home that your foster pet lands up going to.

1. Fostering is flexible

As a pet owner sometimes its tough to go on holiday or perhaps with your work schedule you can't commit to a full time pet. Fostering allows you to be flexible so that you can have pets in your home temporarily when it suits you.

2. Fostering teaches pets to love and trust.

Many of the pets that come to the wet nose have either been abandoned and have had to face the hardships of living on the streets including being kicked or chased away be people or abused. Some of these animals have never had the luxury of living in a home and have no idea how to behave around humans. Fostering helps to teach these animals about love and trust making them an easy choice with potential adopters.

3. Fostering makes pets more adoptable

The last point leads onto this one. While in your care you often spend time teaching these pets to socialise with other animals and with humans, sometimes teaching them to use outside as a bathroom or how to use puppy pads. Many fosters enjoy getting the chance t teach puppies basic obedience. All of these small things makes a pet more adoptable and appealing.

4. Brings joy to your home

Even if you can't have a full time pet it doesn't mean that you have to give up on having tail wags, or kitties purring and cuddling with you. Your children and the rest of your family can also enjoy the benefits that come with having a pet around the hosue even if only for a short while.
