ADOPTION – Self Foster
Adoption Self Foster is where you adopt and undertake the role of fostering yourself, meaning that your dog learns the rules in your home from the start. They settle in and start to bond with you and learn exactly what you want them to. If things aren’t the right fit then you have 28 days to find that out and you return them to the program along with a completed foster report and receive a full refund and you have helped transition a greyhound to a pet home and gathered information that will assist us to find the right home for them. You will receive a collar, lead, muzzle and coat plus the adoption fee is reduced if you foster adopt.
The reason behind Gaptas fostering a greyhound out prior to offering them for adoption is to prepare them for the many different situations & experiences they will encounter in their new life as a pet. The other aim of foster care is to gauge & provide feedback on the dogs temperament and responses to different situations to determine the most appropriate home to suit the dog. The entire foster period is an information gathering phase as well as setting firm rules and boundaries to help the greyhound transition.
To help the dog along we ask of the following in foster care.
Sleeping on their own bed
Walking calmly on lead
Walking up and down stairs
Get in and out of a car
Basic commands – No, On your bed, Wait.
