FOSTER HOMES
Wire Fox Rescue Midwest could not make the magic happen without the dedication and sacrifice of our Rescue Volunteers. Fostering plays such an important role in Rescue as it allows us to live with, spend time and evaluate each Wire Fox Terrier for personality, temperament, and compatibility with others. Getting to know the Foster Wire helps ensure a good match with each prospective applicant. Having a foster home for a Wire Fox Terrier, whether it be overnight, short term or until placement is instrumental in saving a Wire Fox in trouble. With more volunteers to join Rescue - more Wire Fox Terriers could be helped and live a happy life.
Wire Fox Terrier Rescue Midwest pays for all vet work and expenses associated with the foster Wire Fox Terrier. Whether we are billed directly or the foster home is reimbursed, you would never be expected to bear the costs personally as with other organizations. If you have time and love to donate, we would be thrilled to have you on board. Being a part of Rescue has many rewards which become evident when taking an active role. There is a spiritual gratification as well as the opportunity to meet and make friends with others who share the same values and compassion for animals.
A common concern with many is their current Wire Fox Terriers and bringing another into the home. Gating off a section of the home works well, crates or separate rooms. The foster Wire is not expected to mingle with the resident animals but is a consideration based on the foster, the other dogs and the home. A Foster Home would be required to go through an approval process similar to adoption prior to becoming a foster.
Many Wire Fox Terriers in trouble are located in one State and need transport to another to get to their foster home. Taking one leg or the entire journey is greatly needed as many of these Wires in shelters have days or hours left before being euthanized for lack of space. Pulling a dog and bringing to safety at a vet or boarding facility until transport can be arranged could mean the difference between life and death. All boarding fees and costs would be paid directly to the animal hospital or would be reimbursed.
TRANSPORT
We have partnered with Pilots n Paws on many Rescue missions. Pilots from this non-profit organization donate their services to transport a rescue dog from one municipal airport to another. Giving a Wire Fox Terrier a lift to the airport to meet his flight would be of great help. Please contact us if you would be willing to give transport assistance in your area.
