>Foster to Adopt

May 20, 2010


Sometimes people aren’t really sure if a dog is completely right for them.  It is hard to tell when you meet a dog for 30 minutes how they are going to fit in with your family, how your pets will respond to another dog in the house and just generally if that particular dog is the perfect dog for you.
We understand that.  Bringing a new dog into your household isn’t usually a completely smooth process.  Sometimes it can go fabulous from the first moment the dog walks through the door, but most times there are a few hiccups along the way.  It takes a little while for dogs to be completely comfortable and for their true colours (good and bad!) to shine through.

We want to make sure you are making the right decision so some times when people aren’t sure, we allow them to try overnight visits or even “foster to adopt”.  Foster to adopt means that you are committing to foster the dog until they are adopted.  And you just might be the ones to adopt them.  We know that you are interested in the dog and if someone expresses interest in that dog, we will let you know, and you’ll be given a chance to say whether or not you can part with them.  Most foster to adopts end in adoption.  Heck, lots of just fostering ends in adoption, whether you were planning on it or not!

It doesn’t normally take more than a few days to know if a dog is right for you.  You are either in hook, line and sinker or sitting on the fence. If after a day or two, you are still sitting on the fence, that probably means, this dog isn’t your perfect match. But no worries, someone out there is looking for a dog just like her/him and there is a dog out there that is perfect for you.  The trick is finding each other!

For more information on fostering, please contact the Windy City Canine Rescue at info@windycityrescue.com or by calling 403-359-3139.

Our adoption fee allows us to provide the basics for the dogs in our care, but we are always encountering additional expenses (dental work, medicine for illnesses, etc.).  If you would like to help dogs like this one, but aren’t looking to adopt one at this time, please consider a donation.  Thank you.
