Plea for foster homes

As the year progresses, it seems to be a sad fact that the number of
coming into rescue increases. There are many reasons for this - dogs
outside more and more likely to escape from their yard, dogs get lost
traveling with their owners on vacation, people who have been
debating as to
whether or not to give up their pet decide to do so prior to going on
vacation,...and the holiday time is coming up ..

We have already noticed a significant increase in intakes, so in
response to
this and in anticipation of even more intakes in the months to come,
Rescue USA is launching an appeal for foster homes. Fostering a cairn
certainly be a challenge, but it can also be very rewarding, as those
who have
fostered can attest.

If fostering is something you think you might like to try, please go
http://www.cairnrescueusa.com/volunteer/frm_foster.htm for further
including a testimonial from one of our foster homes, and to take a
look at
(and hopefully submit!) one of our foster home applications. Filling
out an
application does not commit you to fostering a dog, it simply adds
you to the
pool of volunteers we will contact when we're looking for a foster
home. It is
absolutely OK to say no at any time, no questions asked.

As a foster home for Cairn Rescue USA, you will have input into the
of your foster dog. If we get an application that requests the dog
that you're
fostering or one that looks like a good match for your foster dog,
our Placement Advisor, may contact you for more information. We also
make a
table available with information about our applications, and ask you
to let us
know if you see one you think would be a good match. As an
application moves
along, foster home input is an integral part of the process. Once a
check and home visit are successfully completed, we put you in touch
with the
applicant, and your impression of the home is considered by our
Committee and the Board in making the final placement decision.

This December, members who have fostered a dog for us in the past
year will
also be eligible to nominate and vote for a foster home
representative to our
Board, giving foster homes an official voice in the administration of
Rescue USA. For more information on how to become a member of Cairn
USA, please see http://www.cairnrescueusa.com/frm_member.htm. Even if
not able to foster, volunteers are always needed and welcomed -

Finally, if you've been thinking about talking to that friend, family
neighbor, or co-worker about fostering, this would be the time to
through. I will be more than happy to answer any questions anyone
might have
about fostering. I think anyone who has had the experience of
fostering would
recommend it highly.
