Do you want to help your rescue or shelter learn as much about your foster pet(s) as possible? Are you ready to help your pets find loving forever homes? The key to finding the right family is patience, a great photo (or five), and a descriptive biography of your pet! Try to tell a sweet story or a cute anecdote so that possible adopters read it and relate to your foster pet – they might fall in love through their biography and photos!
