Foster A husky
Foster Homes provide either short and/or long term accommodation for the huskies once we rescue them from pounds.
Short term foster homes are more frequently needed for the urgent recovery of huskies from pounds until a long term foster or permanent home can be found.
Long term fostering is only required, to allow some dogs to pass through and receive medical attention that may be required.
If you are interested in fostering, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also recommend that you check out our Useful Links, to find further information on the husky as a breed.
