Houston has a millions of street and homeless dogs. Local rescues are doing what they can to help these dogs, but more needs to be done. Fostering a dog is great way to help local rescues. Most do not have a facility to keep their rescues in and rely on volunteers to foster and care for these fur babies. You can foster for a weekend or longer and help give these dogs a chance to socialize with people and other pets in preparation for finding their fur-ever home. Fostering is also a great way to teach children about the responsibilities of pet ownership. Most parents have heard the plea from their children, "please mom/dad, can we have a dog?" What better way for them to see for themselves what is involved in caring for a dog, than by fostering one for the weekend? Fostering also helps the rescues by showing these formerly homeless dogs what it is like to be in a loving home with people who actually care about them. If you are interested in fostering one of these great dogs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about their availability.
