Why foster an old dog?
(1) Older dogs are always at the top of the euthanasia list so they don’t have a lot of time to be seen by potential adopters. Therefore, you are buying them more time.
(2) Shelters are way to stressful for an old dog and they lapse into depression very easily.
(3) They can’t easily fight off contagious diseases like kennel cough which runs rapid in county shelters.
(4) It’s also an easier transition for a old dog when he comes from a foster home to his new home, then from a shelter.
(5) Not only are you buying that dog more time, but you’re also opening up a spot in our organization where we can go rescue another senior dog plus when we rescue a dog from a county shelter it opens a kennel at the shelter so it buys the other dogs more time. You could be saving several lives just by opening your heart and home to one dog.
Seniors for Seniors
An old dog can make a senior citizen feel 20 years younger. They can get you off the couch, they can get you out for a nice leisurely walk in your neighborhood or in a park, they’re great companions with unconditional love. They bring joy and laughter into your heart and most importantly: They don’t chew on the grand kids like a puppy does.
WE WILL ALWAYS BE IN NEED OF FOSTER HOMES SO PLEASE THINK ABOUT BECOMING A FOSTER PARENT. THANKS
