Domestic pets such as dogs and cats are remarkable for their capacity to love humans. Studies show that animals share a strong sense of companionship for their masters and improve almost every aspect of the owner’s lives including their health and even their outlook on life. How animals affect the lives of people is among the reasons why almost every family should have a pet. But instead of spending thousands of dollars to buy these amazing animals from pet stores, potential pet owners have a more adventitious option available to them; pet adoption.
1. Fostering increases an animal’s chance of getting adopted. Foster families are usually the first to find out about the pet’s personality. You may even be the first to teach your foster pet basic house manners, making them more appealing to potential adopters.
2. Your own pets will learn more social skills. The more animals your pets come in contact with, the better they are at dealing with stress and getting used to strangers. Your pet might even find a playmate in your foster pet.
3. You get to see if you’re ready to own another pet. Maybe you want to foster a certain dog breed to see if you’re ready to adopt one, or you want to see if adding a cat into your all-dog household will upset the balance. Or maybe you want a new pet now but aren’t sure where you’ll be in the next 5, 10, 15, or 20 years. Though fostering is not a trial adoption period for that pet, it can help you try out changes to your current "fur family."
4. You are saving a life. You feel good, your shelter or rescue group helps more animals, and your foster pet is happy, healthy, and well-socialized. Talk about win-win-win!
