Being a foster pet-parent isn't for the faint of heart. Ask anyone that has fostered a dog before, and they will share their stories of tears and joy. I believe it takes a courageous individual to be a foster pet-parent.

What is Fostering?
Fostering is taking a dog from a shelter, usually through a shelter or rescue organization that provides guidance, medical and financial assistance, and bringing the dog into your home. Fostering is a great way to help modify unwanted behaviors, heal wounded "hearts" from abuse, nurse an injured pet back to health, and open up a much needed space at the shelter. A foster pet-parent provides a loving atmosphere that isn't so overwhelming and stressful like a shelter.

Many dogs go unadopted at shelters for displaying behaviors that are huge turn offs to potential adopters. To read more about being a foster-pet-parent click on the attached link to go directly to Victoria's blog at
