I can think of no better way to recruit fosters than to tell you what it means to me.
As an adopter of a rescue dog you can save that one life….. as a foster you can literally save hundreds!
I have fostered dogs for different rescues for over twenty years now. I have made some amazing friends and met some incredible dogs. There are tough times and disappointing times but none of those feelings could ever counteract the elation of a happy ending when the dog is successfully adopted.
To watch a scared dog emerge into a ‘normal’ dog knowing that without your love and kindness they would be nowhere. To see an unwanted and abandoned dog in the arms of a devoted adopter as a pure result of you giving them a little space in your home…. no money could ever buy that feeling.
To give the gift of LIFE to a dog that would have been killed purely because there was nowhere for them to go….. what could ever match up to that?
Yes, you may get attached….. yes, you may shed a tear when the dog leaves….. but what are a few tears compared with the gift of life?
Please consider fostering because we are ALWAYS in need. Without fosterers there simply would not be a Safe Rescue. We are proud of our rehoming system. No dog goes anywhere without thorough homechecks prior to adoption. Our successful adoption rate is higher than any other rescue I ever worked with because we KNOW our dogs so well because one of our team lives alongside them.
The message is simple…… Fostering saves lives!!
