Thank you for generously volunteering your time as a foster home. Fosters are the most valuable aspect of our rescue. Your foster dog or kitten is lucky to have you help them begin their much deserved second chance at life!
As a nonprofit with a very limited budget, we focus on providing veterinary care for serious or life threatening conditions. We reserve the right to make all decisions regarding the medical treatment of our rescue dogs and kittens. For minor conditions, we often have medications we keep in stock to treat the issue. Learn more.
We recommend that foster homes train and socialize their foster dogs. This makes them more adoptable and gets them off to a good start. Learn more. Dog needs house training? Get tips here.
While fostering we are happy to lend all necessary supplies. All dogs will be sent home with crate, collar, leash and food and through generous donations we are able to provide toys, treats, beds etc. If you are running low on any supplies please let us know. Complete this quick supply request form.
Returning an animal
If you need to return your foster animal, we’ll immediately try to make arrangements to transfer your animal to a different foster. This can take anywhere from a day to a few weeks depending on how urgent the situation is. If you let us know ahead of time that you must stop fostering by a certain date, we’ll be prepared in advance to move the dog or cat.
Dogs off leash
For the safety of our rescue dogs, we have a strict policy that rescue dogs may not be let off-leash in an unfenced area while they’re in foster care.
Going out of town?
Let us know if you're going somewhere while fostering so we can determine the need for another foster home or not. If your foster dog is not spayed/neutered yet, we would not want them traveling.
Please explore the rest of the site (it's just for you, our fabulous fosters). If you still have any questions, please let us know.
