As we all know, there are far too many pups in shelters and rescue centers desperately in need of a loving forever home. Most of them were brought in as strays – an unfortunate number were born within the shelters themselves, their mothers already pregnant when they were brought in.
Now, shelters do their best to provide for and take care of these puppies. There is, however, a huge problem – shelters and rescue centers and nothing like a home environment. This is especially crucial for pups who have not lived inside a house before – in order to make the pup more adoptable, they have to adapt to living in a home.
Into this equation we add foster families. Foster parents can take care of pups like this 2-year-old Dachshund mix, Stori, giving them the love and attention they need while housebreaking them. This makes them so much easier to adopt in the future!
