WHY FOSTERING IS IMPORTANT: When people see dogs behind bars they are not seeing what the dog is truly like. These three things listed below can cause a person to never want to take the dog out of the kennel. So no one ever sees what the dog is truly like...
-Some dogs will not wag their tail at you or act happy to see you when they are in their kennel but once they are in the yard with you they are very interactive and running around happily.
-Some dogs bark a lot at people when they are behind the bars but once you take them out in the yard they don't bark and are happy.
-Some dogs are barking to protect their kennel from other dogs but when they are walked outside they get along with other dogs.
If the dog is in a foster home then when people come visit them they see who the dog truly is. When dogs are in shelters they are SO stressed that they start doing behaviors to try to cope with the stress, things they may not do if they were in a home. Also if the dog is in a foster home they can find an adopter more quickly because you can tell people all that you have learned about the dog, for instance if they are housetrained, get along with cats, etc. When they are in a home they learn to interact and bond with people again.
Fostering is about helping the dogs that get overlooked. It is possible that some dogs may never get adopted unless they are put into foster homes.
