Group Description

Welcome to FosterDogs, a support group for people who foster dogs in their homes. All breeds and mixes are welcome. This is a supportive environment and flaming will not be tolerated. Topics include:

- Preparing your home, family and pets before your foster dog arrives
- Integrating your foster dog into your home and pack
- How to avoid getting too attached
- Obedience training, remedial socialization, and behavioral problem solving
- Finding and screening potential adopters
- Addressing common (and not so common) medical issues
- Shelter/rescue group policies and procedures
- Legal/liability issues
- ... and more!

Please stay on topic. Posts about animal rights, virus warnings, and widely crossposted jokes or stories are not permitted. Due to the large numbers of crossposts sent to the list, we now limit any transport/rescue/foster requests to those in which our members are actually involved, rather than just crossposting. Thanks for your understanding.

New members are briefly moderated to ensure compliance with our simple rules.

Visit our website at www.fosterdogs.com for more support and guidance!

Please note that is is NOT a place to look for free "foster" care for your own dog when you are unable to care for him/her. For more information, read I Need a Temporary Home For My Dog, and check out these resources. If none of these options apply to your situation, consider giving your dog to a rescue group for permanent placement in a new home.
