* Fostering a dog can be tremendously rewarding. It also requires making a serious commitment to helping a dog which has just undergone a major journey and rehabilitation from a variety of difficult circumstances in Puerto Rico. The dog may arrive in your care and be nervous, frightened, and disoriented. You will have the critical role of helping this dog become acclimated to a new life in a loving home, and to new sights and sounds, all of which will give him or her the best possible chance of finding the perfect forever home. We urge all prospective fosters carefully consider this commitment before submitting your application, especially first-time fosters.
