The foster family will be responsible for the dog’s daily needs such as exercise, love, working on basic obedience training (if needed) and helping the dog to learn or brush up on house manners. We can help with food if this is important to you. You may be asked to provide transport to the vet or to meet potential adopters. We also need you to provide regular feedback to the person responsible for the dog’s placement in a forever home, and you will be a partner with that person to help select the new family.
Any and all medical care and medication is provided. If needed, food, crates, beds, leashes, collars and bowls – pretty much anything a dog needs – can also be made available to a foster.
Absolutely. Post away and remember to tag us! However, all adoption inquiries you receive must be directed back to the rescue. Anyone who responds to a post about your foster dog must complete an adoption application and follow the adoption process.
We dare you not to! It’s been our experience that each foster dog that comes into your home will take a piece of your heart when it is adopted. That is normal since it’s your job to shower as much love and compassion on the dog that you can. If, however, you realize that you might be a Foster Adopter (also known as a “foster failure”) let us know. It’s one of our favorite conversations to have.
