– Short-term fostering of dogs in New York is a program that is ongoing.

A dog trainer working at the local shelter said that dog lovers can commit to a short-term fostering and when they give the doggos back, they provide information to the shelter, which will be beneficial to find the perfect potential adopter. The shelter noted that even if they play music and be as attentive as they can be to all the doggos, there’s no substitute for the happiness that dogs get when they get taken home.
