Are there requirements people should be aware of before becoming pet foster parents?
Each rescue group has their own requirements. Generally, dog and cat foster pets are required to remain inside (not to be chained or left unattended outside) and fenced in yards are preferred for dogs.
Most rescues will not allow a foster pet to go into a home with unaltered pets. There may be exceptions for medical reasons or show animals.
Because each animal’s personality is different, the rescue will match them to the best possible foster home to suit the animal and the family. So, if a foster family has young children, then only animals that are believed to do well with young children are placed there. The main requirements of people who want to foster is that they be willing to provide a loving, safe environment and to be committed to the animal until their adoptive family is found.
