Fostering can be a very rewarding experience……….. and it SAVES LIVES.
Many people say “I could never foster because it would be too hard to give the dog up when they are adopted” I say really “How can it be harder than knowing an innocent life died because no one was willing to foster? Fosters play an incredibly important role in a rescue dogs journey to a new life. Each street dog that is brought to the US is truly a life saved and the opportunity they are given to start fresh and live a happy fulfilled life is nothing short of a miracle. Only made possible by the efforts of many. YOU can be a part of this process and know that due to your selfless act you helped transform a life. In my opinion, nothing is more rewarding.
ISDF is in desperate need of foster homes in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas. We have 14 dogs arriving in November. We don’t currently have enough foster spots for all the dogs arriving which means that many dogs will need to be boarded until homes can be found. This is not ideal as it costs money and the dogs are not given a chance to acclimate and prepare for success in a home before adoption. Please contact Dawn Trimmel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-426-4148 if you are willing to foster.
