We all love our fosters and want to find the best home for them! One where they will be able to live “happily ever after”! To help you screen the potential new parents capabilities, we are adding bellow some questions that are typically asked by some entities that are engaged in helping animals for several years (Thanks Friends of Animals – Dubai!). Naturally having a perfect questionnaire does not necessarily mean you found the forever home BUT it will help to clarify some key points that might make you more clear when it is time to hand-over your foster.
We recommend that you send these questions to the potential new owner and see what they respond. Feel free to reach out to us in case you need some help assessing the answers! (Please adjust the template as you see fit – it is only here as a starting point!)
