We decided to sign up for the Foster a DC Pet program because we really wanted to foster, but couldn't commit to fostering indefinitely. This program seemed perfect as it allowed us to foster for a predetermined time, plus we love the concept of keeping pets out of the overburdened shelter system and with their owners. Too many people have to give up their pets, when all they really need is a little time to work through their situation. Between the concept and the time-limit, we were eager to give this program a try.
