Fostering is rewarding. It is also difficult. Very rarely does the 'perfect' dog need fostering. Most dogs in foster need love and understanding. They may not know how to follow basic commands, walk on a leash or potty outside.
The good news is that with your care and compassion they can become someone's furever family member. The requirements of becoming a foster parent for one of our rescue dogs is simple. You must be willing to take a dog into your home and give him or her a safe, loving environment along with some patience and guidance while we search for their forever home.
Meet Chelsea, Traveling 4 Paws Foster Coordinator.
"I started fostering in 2017 and never looked back! I had no clue to the amount of dogs in need right under my nose in NJ. Fostering has led to many sleepless night and a chaotic home, but it always leaves me with a happy, loving, and fulfilled heart. I encourage everyone to give the selfless act of fostering to a dog in need at least once in their life. I'm here to walk you through the journey every step of the way."
"This was my first time fostering a puppy. When we picked up our puppy we fell in love with him immediately. We were ready to give him a happy, loving, and safe home like all dogs deserve. The Traveling 4 Paws rescue crew are amazing and such good people, they truly care about all the dogs, they take care of everything, and they always communicate every step to make sure everything is easy for the foster homes and as well as dog's comfort and safety. I am very grateful that I found the Traveling 4 Paws rescue and I want to thank them for everything!"
