Deciding to foster is a decision your entire family needs to agree to. If you decide to foster, you will be providing a very valuable service which will enable us to find our greyhounds their loving families. There is nothing more important to our work than families willing to provide a temporary home for a Grey awaiting adoption.
Important Information About Fostering
We provide the medical care and food for your foster greyhound. What you provide is your time, patience, and love to help your foster dog acclimate to a new home environment in the following ways:
Separation anxiety can be an issue for some, therefore, it's helpful for the foster family to help with the transition to this part of home life also. Greyhound puppies have never been alone as they are kept with with their Moms and littermates until they are ready for training. Then they live in a kennel with other dogs and people around them continually. When you leave the house, some may panic when they realize they are all alone for the first time ever in a new and unfamiliar place. Teaching them that their family will return is an important part of fostering also.
As a foster parent, it is beneficial for you to bring your foster Greyhound to meet & greets or make arrangements for volunteers to bring them to these events.
We always need foster homes. If you have love to give and truly want to help the greyhounds, please ask us about fostering.
