A New Pet
Foster Care Program
Simple and fun.
Being a dog foster parent is one of the most rewarding ways to make a difference in a rescue’s life. The foster home gets to help a special and deserving dog. While our rescue center can make space for a new needy animal.
The role of a foster home is really just the same as with your personal dog and includes day-to-day care such as: love, feeding, grooming and exercise. As with any other dog, a foster is encouraged to apply basic skills such as: house training, walking on leash, sit, down. Fosters are also asked to help with socialization and of course plenty of playtime and affection. All these factors lead to a more adoptable dog which lessens the chance of a return.
Foster Care requirements
In order to be a foster parent, you must be over 18 years of age and have experience with a dog’s care. Your current pets must be up to date on their shots and be spayed/neutered. In addition, you will need approval from all the adult members of your household.
