meaniemuna asked: What is a foster fail?
As a Foster, I have taken in nearly 100 animals at this point - Mostly cats and kittens, a few dogs and puppies….Fosters are important because …. although everyone believes that there are tons of places for cute animals to “go” …. that is just *not* the case. Every birth of a litter is a death of for another Litter - SPCA and the Humane Society Euthanize daily… So many people HATE those organizations … But I commend them - I respect them - Someone has to take care of the unwanted population, “We don’t have room - Fix your pets. Save Lives. Stop giving us your unwanted animals.” - I respect them. But I would never give them a pet that was not worth putting down … Ever. In a hundred years. Never.

Foster Failure is when you fall in love with one of your Foster (s) - And you LOVE them… And you feel attached ….. You want to Adopt them. …
If I kept all my Fosters? Would I be helping them and doing them justice? All 100 of them?
The Goal is to save a TON of animals…. (and I have) …. but NEVER to adopt. I am the buffer. I am the person that learns to love and let go. I love them all VERY much. Adopting them does more harm than it does Good. My home needs to be OPEN so that I can save more lives …..
I cannot Fail with him. I will just have to find him an amazing home very very very very close to my friend’s circle ….
