Just one? He will need a friend you know!
Anything in particular? How old is he?
Get the biggest cage you can, use aspen or paper based bedding. At that age they need unlimited hay (alfalfa) , and unlimited pellets (alfalfa based). They need veggies every day too- I give mine romain lettuce, mustard greens, parsley, and carrot.

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

The rescue organization you're fostering with should make sure that he's got a buddy, so that will help a lot.
