I have always wanted a dog but it just does not fit my family`s situation. So then we found out about fostering, which is a lot like having a dog. So basically it`s like this, you go to a shelter and they give you a dog to bring home. The dog lives at your house for as long as the shelter needs, and the other great thing is it`s free. I want to foster because I care about dogs and I want to help.
