Foster

Foster caregivers provide our dogs with safe homes and lots of TLC until they’re adopted.

Qualifications

We require a completed foster care application and an interview with you in your home.

  • Foster parents must be 21 years of age.
  • Foster parents must be able to provide a safe, loving and stable environment for the foster animal.
  • In some instances, experience with animal behavioral or medical issues is a plus, but is not necessary.
  • Foster parents must have common sense and patience.

Duties and Responsibilities

The responsibilities of a foster volunteer include the daily care and maintenance of the foster dog(s), providing them with fresh food and water, and any necessary medications.

  • Making sure they are safe, comfortable, and socialized during their stay in your home is important.
  • Foster parents are also responsible for communicating to the program coordinator and staff any needs or concerns, whether medical, behavioral or other.
  • Foster parents must be able to transport their foster animal(s) to and from veterinarian appointments and adoption events.
  • Foster parents should actively participate in finding their foster animal(s) their forever homes.

Time Commitment

The time commitment required in being a foster parent varies depending on the animals you are caring for. You are their caregiver until they are adopted and their biggest advocate. We couldn’t rescue animals without our foster families as they are the backbone of our organization!
