The application process is as follows:
- Complete the Foster Application.
- Your personal and veterinary references will be checked, and a home visit may be scheduled. Be sure your references are aware they will be called by us.
- Once approved, arrangements will be made for a foster dog that is suitable for your family situation and your experience level.
To make fostering go smoothly:
- Make sure your entire family is prepared to bring a foster dog into the home.
- Your own dogs, if you have any, should not be aggressive towards other dogs and should have basic obedience training before bringing any new dogs into the home.
- If you have a cat, make sure you introduce the dog slowly, and give your cat a safe, dog-free place to go to.
- Be prepared to potty-train your foster dog if necessary.
- If you have young children, be very selective about the dog you take in.
- Our rescue is always willing to take the dog back if things do not work out, so do not feel pressured. We will work to make it an all-around great experience for you and the dog.
- Take time to train your foster dog in basic cues and manners. This will make them a lot more adoptable.
- Socialize your dog as much as you can, not just to people but to other dogs. A social dog is easier to place.
Once you have taken your foster dog home, we ask that you:
- Visit the vet for a standard examination and any needed treatments or vaccinations.
- Provide us with pictures and a biography for our website.
- Provide regular updates to the dog's pictures and biography throughout the fostering period, as we want the information on the website to be as current and complete as possible.
- Attend local adoption events/meet and greets so prospective and approved adopters can meet the dogs.
