I’ve heard it too many times. I’d like to adopt a pet from the shelter, but they have too many issues. No! They don’t all have issues, but they have been let down by people. Some animals may have abandonment concerns, but you can help change that.
Fosters are heroes to animals and to everyone who cares about animal welfare. Fostering means bringing an animal into your home and life, nurturing them, loving them and letting them go when they find a permanent home with a family who will love them forever. Every animal that is adopted or fostered reduces the number of shelter pets that are euthanized each year.
It is remarkable to watch an animal transition from a scared, untrusting, shut down creature, into a loving, flourishing member of a family. That is what fostering allows to happen. Animals that have been let down by people are given the opportunity to trust and bloom again.
You may enter into the foster situation because you want to help an animal, or you are thinking about adopting and you want to make sure the pet is a good fit for your home. No matter what the reason, fostering can bring joy into your life.
I’ve discovered first hand that watching an animal transform and then handing them off to their new home can completely transform your life – a life you will be proud of; a life of love and purpose.
Check into fostering today. Because love transforms everything.
