Being a foster parent can be a rewarding experience. You get a furry friend, and they get an opportunity to escape the crowded, loud shelter. Think of it as getting out of doggie jail! Homeless animals get a place to live while waiting for a permanent home, injured, dogs have a safe and quiet place to recuperate, and a shelter dog gets a chance to become acclimated to life in a home. Fostering also helps keep open spaces in shelters and rescues for new animals.
Setting up your home and bringing the foster dog home: Whether you’ve had dog(s) before or are fostering for the first time, there are things you will need before you get started: A dog will need two bowls, one for their food and one for their water. Of course, toys, a bed and a crate are always recommended. Nutrition is an important consideration for foster pets. Shelters and rescues might have a preferred brand of food, or your foster pet may have allergies or specific dietary needs. Most often, their food will be provided, but be sure to ask just in case. Medications and veterinary care are always provided by Harper Husky House . If an emergency does arise, or the dog needs to go to the veterinarian for any reason, be sure to contact Harper Husky House ASAP. This will allow us to ensure medical fees are covered and the dog gets to one of the veterinary offices we partner with. Of course, be sure to keep ALL RECEIPTS so we can reimburse you for any unexpected issues. We are a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization and rely on donations for food, toys, and general pet care items. We will provide veterinary care funding, but we rely on our foster parents for food and dog care related items. We will try to reimburse you for non-veterinary items, but we generally rely on the kindness of our foster parents and donations for these items.
Although you may think your own dog will welcome a new pet, this may not always be the case. Introducing a new dog can be confusing or spark a territory war between existing pets, so we recommend keeping a separate area for your foster dog. Don’t expect your own pets to happily welcome your new addition, no matter how temporary the situation may be. You must remember, this is you existing pet’s home and a newcomer sometimes is not welcomed.
Depending on which rescue dog you foster, you may end up with a well-adjusted, previously homed pet that does well — or a shelter dog who is afraid of grass!
You might have to administer medication to some foster dogs and should let us know at if this is something you do not want to do. We will make every attempt to give you as much information as possible about the dog you’re fostering. Being an expert in the dog you are fostering is not a requirement. You should, however, have a general love and interest in a rescue dog to recognize sign of illness or distress. After fostering a few times, this will become easy to recognize, but it can be worrisome for the first-time foster parent. Don’t worry Harper Husky House always have your back if you need help for any reason!
There’s no catch. You bring a rescue dog into your home, provide it with a loving family.
What you’re not prepared for is something every foster parent fears: having to say goodbye…
“Foster fail” is a common term for a good reason. Many people integrate their foster dog so thoroughly into their lives they don’t want to give them up. Others allow them to go to their new homes and anticipate the next foster pet. This is perhaps the most difficult part about fostering; at some point you may have to let them go. There is also the possibility of the foster pet dying because of advanced age or illness.
