  •  *Rescue groups, should do a home visit to the foster home & meet the family-prior to them fostering. Check the yard (if there is one) and talk about how the dog is to be cared for. Supporting the foster family with advice, equipment & vetting. Dogs need time in a foster home to relax from all the changes he or she has been through (shelter, vet, transportation). This also gives time for any illness to show up and be treated. Please make sure that the rescue you foster for, treats you (The foster well) and does right by the dog you are fostering. A home visit should always be done prior to adoption, foster to adopt works very well*

...~ Alone Again~ author unknown~ I wish someone would tell me what it is that I've done wrong. Why I've had to stay chained up and left alone so long. They seemed soglad.net to have me when I came here as a pup. There were so many things we'd do while I was growing up. They couldn't wait to train me as companion and as a friend. And told me how they'd never fear being left alone again. The children said they'd feed me and brush me every day. They'd play with me and walk me if only I could stay. But now the family "hasn't time"; they often say I shed. They do not want me in the house, not even to be fed. The children never walk me. They always say, "Not now!" I wish that I could please them. Won't someone tell me how? All I had, you see, was love. I wish they would explain. Why they said they wanted me, then left me on a chain. ~

"Mahatma Gandhi acutely observed that 'the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.' To seek to reduce the suffering of those who are completely under one’s domination, and unable to fight back, is truly a mark of a civilized society."
