Fosters Save Lives

You provide the food, shelter, love, guidance, patience, toys, and more love. We provide standard medical treatments, emergency care if needed, and a vet who will work with us nearby. We are always looking for new foster homes. If you are interested in fostering a deserving dog, please fill out our Foster Application.

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.
