The first thing that will happen is that a veterinarian will look after the injuries that a dog has sustained while it was being maltreated. The vet will also recommend the type of diet that will allow the dog to recover its strength. Once the dog has been cleaned up and the food that it needs to be eaten is noted down, the rest of the staff at the dog shelter will make sure that the dog has a good place to stay for the night.
Once the dog has been placed in the kennel where it will live temporarily the staff will give the dog some water and good food. The food will be filled with vitamins and other food supplements that will enhance the health of the dog.
There are different types of dogs that can be found at a dog shelter. These can be large breeds like Great Danes, Wolfhounds, Afghans and Alsatians to name a few. The medium dogs you can find in these dog shelters are Collie dogs, Boxers, Golden Retrievers, Labradors and others.
In addition to these types of dogs you will find small dog breeds like that of Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, Japanese Spitz, Terriers breeds, Dachshunds and many other types of small dogs. For all of these dogs the dog shelter is the place where they will stay until at good and loving family is found.
While the dog is waiting to be adopted the various requirements for a well trained dog will be fulfilled with the help of foster families. These people will help the dogs from the dog shelter regain their trust in human families and the dogs will also learn how to socialize with family members.

From the different dog shelter that can be found different dog breeds have a chance to live a new life. They are also provided with a family who will give them unstinting care and love.
