    I foster...........I like to foster the problem dogs, either health issues or behaviour.

    I have really good room/run and also crates of several different sizes for inside ..from 5'x5' down to large crate size.

    I some areas you need council permission if you have over a certain amount of dogs, I have a Kennel License, no limit. But I limit myself to two foster dogs at the time. So that I have plenty of time for the dogs.

    I find when there are too many dogs, including your own, time becomes limiting.

    I think foster carers need some general dog training background and study some general dog health.

    Or have a good mentor, because we all have to start somewhere....Some people get very protective over being in dog rescue and they are not willing to teach and be open to new people..i think it is important to help people who want to be "new" to this and give them all of the support/help and education...Good luck

    I nearly forgot the most important part..it might be in all the info you have been given........You NEED a place to keep the dogs in quarantine initially...I have a pen on concrete and no other dogs can get in contact with the dogs that are in there
