Music City Animal Rescue is a network of foster homes that care for the animals we rescue in our homes until they are adopted, we consider a foster to be the most vital part of the rescue process.
As a foster, you welcome the animal into your family. This is crucial!
You help make sure they are socialized with humans as well as other animals.
The most important thing you give a foster animal is LOVE. Most of these animals have been abandoned, or abused and left alone to take care of themselves. We are not always aware of what an animal has been through before they come to us and because of that, our fosters are a vital link to that animals continued happiness and success in finding a forever home.
Music City Animal Rescue will pay for all of the expenses incurred in getting these animals ready to be adopted such as medical care, grooming, and food - all you need to do is be prepared to love them.
We can't stress enough the importance of our fosters. The number of animals we rescue is completely dependent on having an available foster for that animal.
WHAT IS THE UNICORN FOSTER SQUAD?
The term "Unicorn Foster" refers to a foster home that is set up to take in an animal that has special needs and may take longer to place than other fosters. It could be a home with no small children, a home with no other pets, stay at home fosters, or those without frequent visitors. You could have special training in animal behavior or taking care of special medical needs. A Unicorn Foster Home can be any home willing to take in a very special Unicorn baby.
A Unicorn pet can be a pet that is experiencing a medical issue that needs additional time to heal. It can be a pet that is emotionally broken or stuck and needs extra time to learn to love and trust. A Unicorn pet may have high value food aggression, extra high energy, separation anxiety or may be a senior.
The true meaning of "rescue" includes being willing to take a chance of those that are less than perfect. Those that may take a little longer to work thru the unknown but often severe, adverse conditions they were subjected to as a result of abuse or neglect from humans or other animals. Once given a little extra time and attention, these "Unicorns" go on to become loved and cherished members of a family all their own.
