You can build a bridge to a better life for dogs.
Pat Miller's How to Foster Dogs is the first book on the market to deal specifically with the care and training needs of foster dogs and to explain the fostering process within a formal organization like a shelter or breed rescue group. Fostering dogs involves caring on a temporary basis for puppies and dogs that, for whatever reason, cannot be housed with their owners, shelters, or rescue organizations. Many shelters now have formal fostering programs for dogs that are too young, too unhealthy, or have behavioral issues. These dogs must be housed with a foster family or face euthanasia. Breed rescue groups often seek foster homes for the dogs they rescue, using foster homes as temporary havens until a dog can be adopted. Many dogs can end up in what is basically a fostering situation when families move or have a similar disruption and a friend or relative agrees to care for the dog temporarily.
