If I foster a pet, will I be able to take a vacation?
Some potential fosters are afraid that the time commitment to a new animal will complicate already jammed family agendas, including the ability to schedule vacation time.
The truth is most organizations have a built-in plan for foster families who need to be out of town, for any reason.
"You can pretty much continue your schedule, especially if you already have your own pet," says Kim Croom, volunteer of the Pet Foster Network. "You treat the foster pet just like your own. There are resources for foster families and a lot of local pet sitters will not charge you for keeping your pet if it's a foster. Rescue groups can also direct you to business owners who provide discounted boarding for foster animals."
