One of the MOST rewarding ways to help any rescue group is fostering. You get to care for the dog and watch him/her blossom into a star and be adopted by a perfect family!
Fostering is a wonderful experience for you and your family. You can feel good knowing you have helped save a dog’s life. Fostering may be beneficial for individuals who are unable to commit to a dog long term but seek canine companionship. Alternatively, you may have recently lost a canine companion and are looking to help a dog in need while taking the time to grieve. Fostering may also be beneficial to individuals who cannot financially commit to a second dog but would like to have a playmate for their current pet. Foster dogs provide companionship and purpose. Your act of kindness is repaid in rewards that are beyond words.
Foster parents provide a home, basic training, exercise and love for the dog. The rescue will provide you with all the other supplies and equipment needed throughout your foster experience including but not limited to food, collar, leash, bowls, crates, blankets, and authorized vetting. Toys, beds, and treats will not regularly be supplied and will be up to the foster parent to provide if desired.
Some of the responsibilities include:
Assist with training such as socialization, house training, obedience and manners. Your efforts will help the foster dog become adoptable and successful in their forever home.
Evaluating the dog to assist TLC in matching them to the most suitable forever home.
Take your foster dog to the vet when required, for check ups or surgery (TLC covers ALL vet costs through our designated Veterinarians).
Attend functions and TLC meet ups when possible.
Care for the foster dog in accordance with our foster agreement.
Send our Social Media Coordinator daily/ weekly photos and updates to share with our followers.
