Al and I have fostered for MAS Rescue for many years and I know others here have fostered for different groups as well. (Deb? Linda?) Ruby is our first foster-to-family pup and we are taking in a new foster this week- our first since adopting Ruby.
There is always a demand for new foster volunteers so I thought I would start a thread where 1) people who have fostered can share their experiences to encourage others and 2) people who have an interest in fostering can learn more.
Fostering is one of the best things I/we have ever done. The joy of seeing a sad, scared pup you helped to feel safe and loved join a wonderful new family who can't wait to spoil them rotten them far outweighs the sadness of losing your temporary doggie buddy.
