The dogs brought into our rescue program as fosters come
from surrendering owners, shelters or pounds, puppy mills, and breeder releases.Our
foster homes have worked miracles with dogs, given selflessly and made our credo of "rescue with faith" the truth
behind our success.
While fostering has many rewards, it is not for everyone. When you foster, you agree to take a
dog into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, UNTIL THE DOG IS ADOPTED.Our dogs are far from perfect and often enter rescue with "baggage" from their previous life. You
will help them with love and consistency to leave that baggage behind. We have a mentor program. You will be matched with
an experienced volunteer who will be your go to person. Help is only a phone call/email away.
YOUR FOSTER RESPONSIBILITIES:
When you take a dog into your home, you are responsible for
feeding a grain free food.
We will reimburse for vetting costs providing you following our pre-approval guidelines.
You will be responsible
for updating medical information into our PetPoint Management System.
You and your foster will attend adoption events at PetSmarts
and other locations.
You will work with our Applications team to find the best possible forever home for your foster.
You will have the final
approval for the adoption of your foster dog.
You will help them heal and move on to their forever home.
Foster mom Sheila says it all...
"This is what I imagine my heart is beginning to look like. The
number one reason people tell me they can't foster is that it would "break" their heart to give up the dog. Many
times in the last 5 years I've felt like my heart was breaking as I said goodbye to one of my fosters. Many times I've said,
"I can't do this again." Then I remember my heart didn't break, it just cracked a little. Please consider fostering
for a rescue group or shelter. Fostering saves lives and I guarantee your heart won't break."
