Cat Fostering Guidelines
Fostering a cat or kitten from P.R.S is making sure that there is a kitty litter present for them to do the restroom in. It is also important to avoid having any potted plants that is accessible for them to reach , because cats tend to mistake it for a kitty litter and create a mess with the dirt.
Avoid having the Foster pet from going outside. If the foster pet some how gets lost it is your responsibility to notify a P.R.S. representative.
Make sure that there is plenty of food and water for the foster pet.
If you are fostering kittens please keep in mind that some kittens might not know how to do the restroom in the kitty liter and it is up to you the foster to train the foster pet to do so. There will be a kitty litter provided along with food and cat bowls.
It is also important to let any representative in P.R.S know if there are any health issues with the cat or kitten you are fostering. If the cats condition seems to be very ill call a P.R.S. representative so they can call the local vet to see the cat a soon as possible.
If the cats condition seem to be an emergency then you as the foster can take the cat to your local vet to be treated. Once you arrive at the pet hospital then you must call a P.R.S. representative to meet with at that location.
Dog Fostering Guidelines
When your are fostering from P.R.S you must know that the Foster Pets state of behavior can varies to calm and energetic. In the foster application you can choose what kind of pet you prefer to care for depending on behavior. When fostering our dogs or puppies it take a while for them to to adjust to the new environment of your home. Most of the dogs are strays or owner surrendered pets that are not use to a new home or being moved around often. It usually takes about a week or two for the foster pet to become comfortable into their new temporary home. So please have patience for your new furry roommate if he or she get nervous or pees in the house.
When you come home with your new furry friend you must keep in mind that he/she will be a bit nervous from the transition of a new home. So for the first couple of days you and your Foster Pet will be getting to know each other. In the beginning he will not know why he is at your house ,so be patient if he is anxious and pees in your home.
If you are aware that the pet has the tendency to get into or chew certain items;please make sure to make the home pet safe from an items from being destroyed. Please keep shoes. children toys, and clothing are not in arms length for the foster pet to get a hold of.
When fostering a PRS foster pet we do not guarantee that the pet is house broken or potty trained. Depending on the pet they are already trained to pee on mats . Others are trained to pee only outside on a certain schedule that consist of the morning and evening.
Puppies : Fostering a puppy is not as easy as it may seem. Many of the times our puppies are not potty trained and will need to be guided to pee on the pee mats .
Puppies are in need of plenty of exercise and play time. P.R.S will provide toys for the foster pet to play with and puppy food when needed.
If you prefer your foster pet to not be on any furniture ; please do not permit him from getting on any furniture when he/she first comes to your home. If you do allow the foster pet to be on your couch, Pet Rescue Solutions is then not responsible for the damages done to your furniture.
Keep in mind that being in a new environment can cause the foster pet to not eat as much and may loose his appetite every once in a while. Make sure that there is enough water for he/she to consume to and avoid dehydration. If your foster pet continues to not eat please call a P.R.S representative and notify them right away to notify them about the issue.
If you notice that your foster pet looks ill please call a PRS representative; so we can call our local veterinarian and notify you when to take them.
