Dog Fostering

So, long story short, my wife and I recently rescued 6 emaciated puppies from a ditch by the side of the road.

The pups are now healthy and strong and almost ready to go out to rescues. We have plenty of rescues who would like to take them, but they can't because they don't have any available foster homes.

If I can offer rescues puppies who are coming fully spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated including booster shots, de-wormed with official health certificates, with professional photography/video, *plus* volunteer foster homes, there's almost no reason to say no.

If you've never looked into fostering before, it's *awesome*. It's kind of like long-term dog-sitting or a temporary dog.

The rescue organization takes care of all vet/medicine/medical costs, most help provide collars/leashes/crates, and many will even reimburse you the cost of food! All you have to do is provide lots of loving, a structured home, and bring it to events to help it get adopted.

If you've ever wanted to have a dog, but were worried about your work hours, or where you'll be in a year or two, or you're not sure exactly what kind of dog you want yet, fostering is the *perfect* answer. You get to save a dog but don't have to stress over the cost or long-term commitment. And it's the *most* useful thing you can do to help out a rescue.

If you have any questions about fostering, here is a great FAQ page:
http://www.petfoster.org/faqs.html

So if you're interested, let me know (either by PM or email me at gdotmarsh@gmail.com) your location and if you have an interest in a specific puppy. At that point I'll try and match you up with a rescue in your area.

Even if you personally can't, please feel free to pass this along to others you think might be able to!

Thank you again everyone for any sharing of this that you can do!
