We are so excited you are considering fostering a dog for our group! We depend on our foster partners to take care of our furry friends. Fostering an animal is a serious commitment. Please take a few moments to read through the guidelines for our foster volunteers, to determine if you are ready to become a foster home for a dog.
Why do dogs need foster homes?
There are many reasons a dog might need foster care. Some of the most common include:
A puppy is too young to be adopted and needs a safe place to stay until he or she is old enough to go to a forever home.
A dog is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.
A dog is showing signs of stress such as pacing or hiding in the shelter.
A dog has not lived in a home before or has not had much contact with people and needs to be socialized.
Our shelter running out of room for adoptable dogs.
