    I am new to fostering and got my first foster last week. I will mostly be working with rescues that pull small/senior dogs from a high-kill shelter in my area. I have been told by most rescue groups to put the dog on any kibble, because they don’t know what they were being fed in the shelter.

    I would like advice on what kibble to choose, that I can feed to multiple fosters. I will be getting another foster in as soon as this one’s kennel cough clears up.

    I do not generally feed kibble (in the past I fed raw/homemade), so I’m not sure how to proceed.

    My current foster is very underweight and has terrible skin. I have her on Open Farm Grain Free Salmon kibble.

    Thank you for any advice.

    Purina has many different formulas and price points. I steer clear of any grain free foods. There is no benefit to them and may be correlated with Dilated Cardiomyopathy.

    Thank you for fostering!
