This may include housebreaking, basic training, socialization, etc. You may also need to transport the foster animal to scheduled medical appointments and/or adoption events as well as administer any required medications. Fostering is rewarding because you can provide a shelter animal a safe, loving space to call home until they find their forever homes. Fostering also allows Bideawee the space to keep taking in more rescue animals.
