This is great and really sums up just how I feel and I am sure everyone who is involved in running an animal rescue reliant on fosters:

those of us on the admin side of it are indebted forever to the amazing network of people giving these dogs a chance at a new life. Just when we feel we can’t ask for more, another home steps up to the plate and offers to help another dog on the journey to a new home. A foster home is a gift to the dog, to the other rescue volunteers, to the dog’s former caretakers (whether an owner or a shelter) and, ultimately, a gift to the person who eventually adopts the dog. If that’s not “sheltering”, I don’t know what is.
