I just read a very sad post from Crate Escape - a rescue organization in the Hudson Valley.
Approx. every 6 weeks and save 40-50 dogs from being destroyed due to lack of space and overpopulation. But now, due to a lack of foster home availability, they are suspending all dog rescue activity until further notice.
Crate Escape fosters these dogs and promotes them through social media/their website/Petfinder/live adoption events and other avenues to help them all find homes. They have a wonderful track record and have helped so many dogs including Bella. As I watch Bella chewing her latest favorite toy, I can't image her light being extinguished before she had an opportunity to find us - a journey that took the first 8 months of her life.
Fosters are urgently needed so that Crate Escape can get back to what they do best - finding great homes for great dogs.
A good foster needs the following:
- 2 to 6 week commitment of offering temporary housing to a dog in need
- ability to socialize the dog and help them acclimate from kennel life to family life
- willingness to love and teach the dog and help them establish the skills that will make them a great addition to any family
- willingness to have the dog get to their vet visits as scheduled
Crate Escape covers the cost of the dog's care and medical expenses while fostering. This could be a great option for a family that wants to experience dog ownership but can't afford the costs of a new addition to the family.
