Last night I was tooling around some local rescue group websites and found that one does overnight fostering. Basically, if a transport comes in and the foster can’t keep the dog the first night (out of town, prior commitment, etcetera), you bring him in—basically give him dinner, a bath, and a bed for the night.
This definitely got my feelers up. I think we could have an extra dog for a night every once in a while, and that short of time wouldn’t be a huge commitment and would alleviate concerns of getting too attached. We definitely have a ton of questions before we’d consider signing up, and I’m just wondering: has anyone done this or know anyone who has? I’d never heard of this before and it’s intriguing. I’m very curious if it’s as good as it sounds and what the potential downsides are.
