Fostering: A Great Alternative for the Transient Foreigner

Hi all,

I don't know how many times I hear foreigners say "I would like to have a pet, but I don't know how long I will be in Taiwan for." Fair enough. Adopting a pet is a serious responsibility, and one that many transient foreigners can not assume. Especially those who actually plan to go traveling to several countries when they depart Taiwan.

Having a pet has many advantages. For one they are great company. They also bring life to our homes and hours of entertainment. It's also proven that medically speaking, pets are good for our health. They help regulate our blood pressure among other things.

Not to mention that pets, especially dogs do have a few lessons to teach us in terms of loyalty and in terms friendships.

The good news is you do not have to take long term responsibility for an animal if you plan to travel, if you plan to leave Taiwan, or if you simply aren't sure that you are ready for commitment. There is a great alternative, and that is to foster a pet instead.

By fostering an animal, you not only get all the benefits that come with having a pet, but you also reap the reward that is to help another living being in need.

Fostering is also a great way to find out if having a pet is something you would enjoy for those of you who never had a pet before. If at any point in time you do not wish to foster an animal any longer, you simply give us a call and we will come and pick up our friend at your house, no questions asked.

Oh and of course, fostering is a lot cheaper than actually adopting a dog because we assume responsibility for the animal's health the whole time, and we supply you with free dog food and all the other necessary things such as food dishes, a leash and a collar, etc. In other words, it's absolutely free.

So why wait any longer if you want to have a pet? We have great dogs and awesome kitties that are all keen in bringing joy into your day to day life, and they need your help.

You can call me anytime if you'd like to meet our furry friends.
