Fostering is so important to us. If one of our dogs has had veterinary treatment, and needs to recover before returning to the Rescue-Centre, a week or 2 of convalescence with a Fosterer is often essential.
Also, when one of our dogs is adopted, and if ts new home will be outside of Turkey, there is often the need to put the lucky dog into fostering. The reasons for this are to take the dog out out of the Rescue Centre – and any potential illnesses (though rare) which the dog may come into contact with – and to comply with regulations prior to travelling; this includes the long 4 month wait prior to travel to some countries for Rabies vaccination and blood tests. This wait does depend upon the final country destination.
There are basically 2 ways that your dog can be Fostered if Adopted. The first, is to place your dog in a fostering position at a kennels. Whilst Dohakder do not charge anything for your adopted dog, this will obviously cost money as commercial kennels do charge for boarding, the same as anywhere else in the world. This cost can sometimes be a large part the adoption costs, depending on which country you live in (Fostering + transport from Dalyan to your home).
The second option, when available, is for your new family member to be housed with a foster family here in the Dalyan area. The benefits of this are that your new dog will become accustomed to a home environment, if young – will become house trained, will learn routines, have walks and play and most importantly will know it is beginning its journey to a new life by tasting love and happiness in a safe environment.
We are always looking for Volunteer Fosterers, and to be honest, it is quite a commitment to Foster a dog for up to 4 months … you will likely fall in love with the Fur-Baby staying with you, but it is so worthwhile!
To see a dog in a home, maybe for the first time in its life and watch it develop and grow into the new environment it finds itself in is so rewarding. Foster dogs usually offer unconditional love to their Fosterers: It’s as though they understand that their new life has started, and you will often see a playfulness emerge that was maybe not so obvious at the Rescue Centre. If you already have a dog, and Foster, it will help your little lodger to become more sociable and can even help your dog, too.
We are always looking for good homes and kind Fosterers for short or long-term to help our adopted dogs. If you would like to help, please contact us for more details, and the way ahead.
