Foster programs are a necessity in any animal shelter or rescue but creating and maintaining one that provides consistent positive output can be a challenge. Foster homes reduce in-shelter population, reduce stress on staff and animals, and provide much needed real-life information about adoptable animals. The challenge is creating a foster base that will consistently help with the animals your shelter needs help with; the medically challenged and/or behaviorally challenged population.
