Have you ever considered fostering?

February 14, 2012

H.A.R.T. Homeless Animal Rescue Team relies heavily on volunteers who are willing to foster rescue dogs in their homes until good homes can be found for them, or until they can be transported to another rescue.

Fostering is a wonderful, rewarding experience, and we encourage anyone who is considering it to please contact us and try it out.

There are short term fosters: a few days to a couple weeks.
There are long term fosters: the dog stays with you until it is found a home.

You choose the dogs that you foster.

When you foster a dog, you bring that dog into your home, sometimes directly from the shelter.
You offer that dog everything that it has been missing: a bath, some attention, and socialization.
We ask that you monitor the dogs behavior: is it good with cats? Kids? Knows commands? Etc.
We will put any of your information that you have about the dog on it's Petfinder ad, giving potential adopters much needed information about the dog.

If you are willing to housebreak a puppy, it's chance for adoption improves TREMENDOUSLY.

The rescue dog, being in a home setting, has a MUCH higher chance of being adopted!

There is something SO rewarding about taking a rescue dog into your home, giving it some much needed love, and then watching it go to a perfect forever family where it will be loved and cared for. YOU CAN MAKE AN AMAZING DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A RESCUE DOG.

If you are interested in fostering, please contact Lorraine or Cathy of H.A.R.T.

Potential fosters are asked to fill out an application. Please scroll down on the right hand side till you see the 'For Download' section, and find the foster application there.

Thank you so much!
