In rescue we are volunteers united in a mission dedicated to doing something for others, in our case others consists of the dogs, and the families involved. Foster homes are the life blood of rescue, and a major key to helping save and understand our dogs. In kennels dogs are kept in cages with little interaction, especially positive interaction. In a foster home they get to learn and practice those necessary relationships that will help them when they get to their forever home. Also they get companionship, love, exercise they might not have available in a shelter or kennel.
The training and understanding received while in foster care will have a major impact on how they adjust to the next situation, plus the fosters train and evaluate them and can give instruction with clarity no one could give unless they had that time to observe and interact with the dog. It is hard to put into text the depth of the impact a foster home gives to our charges, and sometimes that relationship never changes homes, but only status from foster to adopted... but I digress. Seriously, the demeanor. the frailty, the perception these dogs have as they are shuffled around into noisy clanging cages with barking and howling about does not lend to properly seeing how this dog will perform once out of that scenario, with fosters we have a chance to see them in a relaxed environment without the stresses and cold stink of concrete and metal.
Fostering is not only good for the dogs, it can be an extremely rewarding experience, a chance to help these dogs you have met, helped and train and understand find a family that will truly fit them, and help a family find the furry companion that truly suits their home, their pack. Sometimes it can be hard, to take in a dog, love and care for them and turn and give them away, but that hurt only lasts until you realize you have found their forever home with a family that needed them to be complete, and then you realize that space, now empty, is only there to be filled by another wayward soul who needs your very special help.
Fosters are heroes of rescue, the people who make it possible for us to do our best work helping the dogs and families looking for them, and often the relationships last long beyond those moments. Please consider opening your home as a foster, it may be one of the greatest choices you make and lead you down a road of discovery you never knew existed.

Advice for owners –Drawing on the experience of our members, we provide owners with solutions and alternatives so that Sibe and family may live in understanding and harmony.
Partnering with shelters –Assisting shelters with evaluation, adoption referrals, and placement of the “at risk” Siberian Husky.
Fostering –Sheltering and training Sibes placed in our care until placement in a loving and permanent home can be found.
Placement Assistance for “Owner Surrenders” –When all else fails, we will assist in placing Sibes, that we have evaluated for temperament, directly from their current home to their new “forever home”.
