Hello Nika,

thanks for opening this section as well...

I wish to share with you this;

''A foster home is, a temporary home where the animal gets chance to recover from the stress of being in a shelter or abandoned. Additionally, the foster volunteer has the opportunity to work with the animal to introduce him to family living (if its a puppy or a kitten) or to correct some of the behavior problems that may have led to him being abandoned.

Quite simply: Fostering Saves Lives.''

http://blog.myletsadopt.com/?s=Foster+family

This is from myletsadopt.com and I think it sums up quiet well what a foster is and why it is such a vital part of animal rescue.
Without a proper family or willing individual to take care of the needy animal temporarily,the rescue is not complete,it is indeed a teamwork.

I have been rescueing animals since I was a child like most of the rescuers (seems we're born this way :-) ) and back then we inherently knew we should not let go of an animal until he was ready to go home or back to nature if the rescue was not a domestical animal.

So I hope as the group grows many couchsurfer will take an interest in becoming foster for our little friends and offer their couch ;-)

much love

I can temporarily look after dogs and puppies that are house trained. I have more time on my hands now so I can be home with them some more of the time than before. But on Tuesdays and Thursdays I am gone most of the day.

Let me know if I can help.
