What Does it mean to foster?

Foster's are an essential part of our Rescue-Family. Between our fosters and volunteers, we could not do what we do on a daily basis without their support. As a foster, you will be responsible for the quality of life for our dogs as they transition through the adoption process. Often times, this process is indefinite. While some dogs may go fast, others take time, but they all deserve the love and warmth of a family.

Fosters coordinate with our facilities and staff to maintain regular medical check-ups for our dogs. This means driving them to-and-from appointments, giving any medications needed at home on time, and if necessary, training our dogs on basic etiquette such as potty-training and indoor-behavior. Fosters also connect with potential adopters to send them pictures, updates, and any information on recent treatments.

If you are interested in fostering, the first step is to fill out the form below. We will contact you for a phone interview and discuss your lifestyle, background in animal care, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. However, upon agreeing to foster with us, it is a 30 day renewable agreement. 

The first step towards your new family member is ensuring we have your information on file. This allows us to find the best match for your family and our dogs. This generic application is to match you with any dog to foster. If you are wanting a specific dog, please visit our Adoptable Dog tab and click on the dogs photo that you are interested in. Please be as thorough as possible. If there is not a dog currently in our system that you like, but you would still like to adopt from us when a dog becomes available, then fill one out today!
