This is one of the most important roles in rescue because the more fosters, the more lives we can save! Fostering is the ideal living situation for our dogs while they are waiting to find their forever homes. Kennels provide them with the basics such as food, water, a bed and some outside time, but the dogs do not get the one-on-one care and attention they would be receiving in a loving foster home. Fostered dogs become potty-trained, learn commands and how to walk on the leash, all of which make the dog’s adoption far more successful. If you or someone you know can foster one of our dogs please let us know. Forte Animal Rescue provides medical care and supplies if needed (many fosters already have leashes, bowls, etc.). Contact Us For More Information »
