We work with foster families in the following states:
CA, CO, NM, NV, UT, DC, MD, VA, WA
We also have partnering rescues in GA and TX. If you are in the state not listed above, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will research State and county regulations to see if we can foster in your state or will connect you with our partner rescues in your local area.
You will be responsible for most aspects of dog's care including but not limited to feeding, grooming, taking the fostering dog to veterinary care when needed, and providing basic training. You will also be asked to provide a short weekly update letting us know the progress of your foster dog. At the end of the fostering, you will be asked to coordinate with us to transport the dog to an adoptive family, another foster, or volunteer's place. We will train you and provide guidelines to follow.
Dogs need fostering for different reasons. Many dogs need an adjustment period until they find a forever family. Some dogs need a quiet, safe environment while they are recovering from surgery or illness.
Since we are not a breed-specific dog rescue, we have various types of dogs that need a foster parent. We will review your foster application and try to match your preference, lifestyle, and family members as dogs thrive in different environments. No matter what life stage they are in, they can benefit from fostering and it is one of the most impactful things you can do to change their lives
Of course! It is beneficial for us to learn how our foster dogs would react to other dogs/cats. We will ask you to sign a waiver and it will be your responsibility to separate them for the safety of your pet. We will also ask you for a copy of spay/neuter certificate along with the proof of all the required vaccines (Rabies, DHPPL, and kennel cough) to ensure the safety of our dogs.
We work very hard to support all our fosters throughout the process. We have foster mentors who will be available to answer your questions or need any guidance. We have also partnered with Airvet to provide 24/7 medical support in case of an emergency.
