Shelters do the honorable work of saving animals from the street. However, shelters are usually very stressful places for pets, which can decrease their immune system making them prone to illness. Foster homes are usually less stressful for pets where they can decompress, speed recovery and minimize the risk of behavioral issues- all these factors increase the pets’ chances of adoption. Foster care allows young pets to grow up and sick and injured pets to heal. Additionally, foster care potentially increases shelters’ capacity to save companion pets, thereby reducing the need for euthanasia.
