  questions about fostering dogs (rottymom)

I will be moving to the Little Rock area in the next few months and have been considering fostering dogs while staying at home. I do not see any information available about fostering. What to expect? Any training courses offered? Etc. If there is any one with any information I would greatly appreciate it.

There isnt any training. Fostering usually means providing a place for a rescue dog to stay while it is looking for their forever home. Sometimes this is days, other times months. The foster usually only provides food but in some cases that can also be provided through the rescue group. The rescue groups provides all vetcare. If the foster is able, they are asked to bring the dog to adoption showings. If you have other dogs in your home, this can make it a little more difficult to fostering since the dogs might not all agree to get along. Slow introductions are best so it works best if you can rotate inside / outside so your dogs and the foster are not just mixed together too soon. To make sure everyone is safe. It is a good idea to require the rescue dog to be up to date and seen by a vet before bringing it into your home as it could be a potential exposure problem for your dogs. Other than that, that is about it.
