What benefits does a foster parent get?

Well, hopefully you’re not looking into fostering for any benefit other than the personal satisfaction of helping an animal in need. That’s the main benefit you’ll get from being a foster parent and that’s what makes our fosters so special. By being a foster parent and spending your time with a dog, you know that you are directly helping save a dog. Every foster home equals a dog who probably otherwise would not have been rescued. As GDRST pulls dogs largely from kill shelters, each foster home brings a chance to avoid that outcome for a dog and get him ready for a lifelong home with a good family. For our foster parents, that’s worth more than money or other incentives. Dogs seem to know when they’ve been saved and the look on your foster dogs face when you take him in and when he’s happy with his forever home is priceless.
