The act of fostering an animal where the foster has the intention of adoption.
Sometimes this is set up for the adopter as a trial option. Other times it is in order to fulfill the contract for reasons such as:
- Animal is not yet fixed. Either because of medical reasons or scheduling delay.
- Animal is ill and the organization has committed to provide care along with adopter until fully healed.
- Foster decides while already fostering to adopt and adoption process is not yet finalized.
