Fostering puppies and dogs is one way that people can help us in a big and important way. Many people spend a month or several months in Antigua in the winter but always leave the island in the summer. For this reason, many dog lovers feel they cannot keep dogs while they are here. However, if you love dogs, you might find that fostering a puppy or an older dog for a few weeks during your stay is a real pleasure.
Some residents might already own a dog or several dogs and be worried about fostering another because they know that they cannot keep it forever. Dogs and Cats of Antigua is now regularly sending pups and adult dogs who cannot find homes in Antigua abroad. It is simply a matter of holding the dog for a few weeks until it is ready to travel.
