Fostering a dog is a very rewarding experience. You will be directly helping to save a dogs life and give him/her a second chance.
What Do You Provide For Foster Homes?
We will supply each foster home with food, a leash and a collar. We cover all medical expenses (spaying/neutering, vaccination, de-worming, micro-chipping) and any other extensive medical attention that is needed. If you are running low on food, please give us at least a weeks notice to provide you more.
All we ask from you is to provide a loving, safe home and any basic training that is needed. If any additional training is needed we will set you up with a trainer. We also ask that you provide transport to any vet appointments.
What If I Go On Vacation?
If you need to go away on vacation, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible so we can find a temporary foster home to watch over your foster dog. Of course, you could always take your foster dog with you.
What If I Want To Adopt My Foster Dog?
Unless your foster dog is already pending an adoption, you can adopt!
We try our best to match up a dog that will suit your lifestyle. We take into consideration your lifestyle, residence and any restrictions/limitations. We ask that anyone considering fostering have their dogs spayed/neutered by the age of 6 months or older, be up to date on vaccinations (D.A.P.P & Rabies) as well as being treated with some form of flea/tick/lice deterrent. Fostering is an extremely rewarding experience. However, it does take dedication and commitment. Dogs are not perfect, especially coming from less than ideal conditions, but we do our best to ensure fostering is a positive experience. Please note that by submitting this application you agree that you are ready to foster a dog right away.
