It is expected that foster homes provide adequate shelter, food, walks, basic training, kindness and patience when housing a rescue dog who has been pulled from a shelter. What can you tell us about your knowledge of using positive reinforcement to shape the correct behavior of dogs?
You may be asked to assist with placement of the foster dog while in your care by being available to perform certain tasks such as meeting with potential adopters or attending adoption events. Are you willing to have potential adopters come over to your home to visit with the dog and provide us feedback on the how the visit went?
Have your personal dogs been vaccinated for kennel cough by getting their Bordatella vaccine in the past 6 months?
Once we receive your foster home application we will review it and call you to discuss fostering. We require that foster homes sign our “Foster Home Agreement” prior to placing them with a foster dog. We will email you this form to complete. If you are on Facebook, we will also add you to our Foster Home Group where incoming dogs needing foster placement are posted. This group provides support, feedback and information about fostering our dogs.
