How to Foster Dogs
How to Foster Dogs: From Homeless to Homeward Bound | Pat Miller, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA

Fostering dogs involves caring on a temporary basis for puppies and dogs who for whatever reason cannot be housed with their owners, shelters or breed rescue organizations. Many shelters now have formal fostering programs for dogs who are too young, unhealthy or have behavioral issues and therefore have to be housed with a foster family or face euthanasia. The book also covers informal fostering situations when families move or have some disruption and a friend or relative agrees to care for the dog temporarily.

This is Ivy. Ivy was our foster pup for 6 weeks last year. Today is the 1 year anniversary of her surrender to the shelter. As you can see, she was in ROUGH shape. But as you can also see, today she is a beautiful, happy, healthy girl. This nugget will always have a special place in my heart. ❤️And she and Pickles are BFFs.

Ashley_Nicoletto Her poor fur. This is how my pup looked when I first took her home. She had a bad case of mange. I'm so happy to see her happy and healthy now! 3y
MicheleinPhilly @Ashley_Nicoletto The smell. OH THE SMELL! But I loved that stinky bugger. 3y
ReadingEnvy She's doing so well!! 3y

Ashley_Nicoletto @MicheleinPhilly 😂😂😂 My pup still has skin problems sometimes. They think she's just immunocompromised and I know as soon as she's getting sick due to the smell. It's so nasty. 3y
LauraBrook Aw, what a happy gal she is! 💖 3y
LauraBeth Awww - what a pretty baby! The husband and I were in serious talks today about adopting another dog 🐶 3y
AlaMich She looks great now!! 🐶 3y
MicheleinPhilly @ReadingEnvy @Ashley_Nicoletto @LauraBrook She's very lucky! She was adopted by one of the vet techs at the shelter who fell in love with her when she came in. 3y
MicheleinPhilly @LauraBeth Have you cleared that with the boss???? 3y
LauraBeth She's the one who brought it up! I swear 😀 3y

MicheleinPhilly @EvieBeeReads I'm not a violent person but sometimes I would like a minute with people that do this. 😡 3y

Purrfectpages Happy anniversary! What a lucky dog! 3y
Scurvygirl 😿😻💚💚what a happy ending. My River was thrown from a moving car as a puppy and had all sorts of surgery to her legs. I rescued her from down south. She is the sweetest thing. Not a mean bone, loves all living creatures, hates the vets.😹 3y

MicheleinPhilly @Scurvygirl I'd like to throw some people from a moving car. 😡 I just don't understand how people can harm these poor creatures. 3y
