Fostering a Senior Dog
Now more than ever fosters are a live saver for senior dogs.
With overcrowding and dogs getting euthanized to make space for more dumped dogs senior dogs depend on them.
When you foster, not only will it free up much needed space in overcrowding shelters, senior dogs often represent the highest at-risk percentage of pets in shelters.
Senior dogs have it hard in shelters, the noises, being left to their own devices..being next on the list to get euthanized in case of overcrowding..
By fostering a senior dog you are literally saving his life.
Senior dogs in foster that come from abuse, learn to trust and love again. If the foster already has pets, it allows the senior dog to socialize.
In a matter of time , these senior dogs, who have been thrown away as trash, learn to love and trust humans again.
Fostering can also be a satisfying experience for those who open their doors to senior dogs in need. They are able to see changes, physical and emotional that take place once they are in a loving environment.
