Fostering For CGSR

Why Foster

Fostering a dog is just one way that you can benefit the life of an unwanted or abandoned pet.

Rescues and council pounds would like to save every homeless pet, but this impossible due to space or special care the dog may need, there is also the costs involved with this.

Dogs that would be put to sleep due to restrictions or space available can be saved by caring people, who readily open their hearts and homes to rescue these special animals.

The vast majority of these dogs were once in loving homes but for some reason find themselves homeless, very scared and alone, wondering what they have done. This is very stressful for them suddenly being in a strange place, with strange surrounding and people they do not know.

Stress in these circumstances can be seen in different ways, some may have a complete personality change from a loving dog into a dog that can show aggression, shutting down or self mutilation.

Foster homes can help these poor dogs which cannot cope with kennel stress or other needs which they may have by providing them with the love and care which they may need.

Some may be young dogs who need training or learning how to behave in a home, others may be whelping bitches which need more help or a quiet place, or they could be elderly dogs that just need somewhere warm and quite.

To a dog a foster home is not a halfway house - it's a first class home.
