Keep a muzzle on the foster at all times, even if hse doesn't like it. Better to be safe than sorry.

Keep the bunny and the ferret behind a closed door for a while. The foster will smell that they are near and get used to it. Your cat needs a way to feel safe - maybe a baby gate it can squeeze thru to escape.

Introduce the foster to the shelties outside the house first.

The foster will be overwhelmed will new smells and sounds plus it's hard to explain to your current pets what's going on.

Make sure the kids know to keep all doors and outside gates closed. This is especially important when they have friends over.

No hugging the foster. You need to know if she's definitely kid-safe and not sleep aggressive.

Greyhounds like routines. Feed the same times and in the same order. I always "stand guard" when there's a new dog in the house. I don't want any food fights.

And have fun! Thank you for fostering. :)

Hello! Congratulations on fostering. I just became the new foster coordinator for North Coast Greyhound Connection, so we may just meet! I heard you were fostering and I think that is wonderful. That is how I started out. Then, fell in love with my 3rd foster--Vanilla. Believe me, you will feel a great sense of happiness from doing this!

Good luck, and welcome! We have a rabbit too - a mini Rex who is actually the same color as our newest grey, Star. They haven't met yet, but Lance (the senior grey) is afraid of the rabbit. Pretty funny to see this huge black dog backing out of the room with his ears down as a four-pound rabbit goes up on the bars of the cage, growling...
