I might be fostering an english setter rescue. I've let them know that I'm willing anyway. We'll see, I've volunteered before and its not been needed.

I think that its really due to my wonderful ES pup. I look at him all the time and wonder how anyone could possibly get rid one of these lovely dogs. I don't understand it.

Good for you for considering fostering. You will find it very rewarding.

I havent fostered very many dogs ( 3 total) and I didnt keep one of them, dont think i dont think of them everyday though.
It is SOOOO hard to let them go, but I like meeting the people that they go to, ( it helps me)
I havent fostered any cats, ( we all know i have ENOUGH )
I do however keep my own little 'rescues'
Thanks for fostering it helps so much!

YAY!!! Another foster home! Have fun and good luck, I am sure you will enjoy the experience,we are on # 7 for a german shepherd rescue and have managed to not keep one, we have 2 of our own so if we kept any we would be at our limit, sad to let them go but it is to good homes so well worth a few tears

Well, good news!!!!

I won't need to foster this one, he's found a family. :highfive: What a lovely reason not to be needed.

Hi all, I am currently a cat owner and have to male brothers about 8 yrs old. How does one go about fostering a cat. What are some of the things involved? If someone can provide me with info, I may look into doing that.

Thanks a bunch! :crazy:

Hi Lovemycats....just call your local rescue groups and they will give you all the details. There are never enough foster homes, so if you can help. I'm sure they will be eternally greatful....and its fun too, by the way. ;)
