If an animal is going into foster care it is usually because they’ve been uprooted and need a safe place to land. Some animals are happy to see you no matter what but the rest are usually stunned and scared. They don’t know what is happening to them when you pick them up and they have no idea how good they are about to have it living with you. Creating a calm, comforting experience from the beginning will make your foster’s transition into your home much easier for everyone.
