Home » Adoptable Pets » Foster Application Foster Application Step 1 of 2 50% This form is designed to provoke thought about whether or not you are prepared to offer the best possible experience to an animal in need. We expect several things of our fosters, including compassion, perseverance and reliability. Do you exemplify these qualities? Please give each question serious thought as it will help us to determine your eligibility. Sharing your home with an animal, even temporarily, is a responsibility to be treated with care and respect. Many of our animals will require extra loving care as they recover from illness or learn correct behavior. If you are up to the challenge and ready to reap the rewards of helping to save the life of an animal, apply today! A Foster Home is a temporary home for a dog, cat or bird until our organization finds a permanent home. If you are interested in potentially providing a permanent home for one of our adoptable animals you should fill out an adoption application instead. The majority of our animals come to us from shelters, humane societies or other rescue groups. Because of this we have no history of the animals’ medical or behavioral information. During intake we evaluate each animal and continue to update the information on them as long as they are in our care. You will be provided with any information we have on the animal you wish to foster in your home. Thank you for offering to become a foster home for our organization! To be considered as a foster home for our organization, you must: Be 21 years of age or older. Have consent from your landlord to have a dog, if you rent your home/apartment Have all dogs and cats in the home spayed or neutered, if they are 6 months or older, unless there are medical reasons for not doing so. Have all dogs/cats in the home current on vaccinations. Agree to have a home visit done by one of our volunteers. The volunteer will need to see the areas of the home where the dog will be allowed and also visit with family members and current pets. Attend at least 2-3 dog training classes. ￼You must also agree to the following conditions, which are included in the foster home agreement contract: Agree to never allow the foster dog to be off leash when it is outdoors, unless it is in a securely fenced in area. Agree to have the foster dog reside in the home, not outside. The foster dog may NOT be left outdoors if you are not at home. This includes outdoor kennel runs. Agree to never allow foster dog to be left unattended with young children. Our rescue organization is an all (unpaid) volunteer organization. For each application we receive it takes us approximately 3 hours to review, contact all personal and veterinary references, and make a decision on approval of it. Depending upon volunteer availability, this can take us several days to accomplish, especially when we receive many applications or if we have difficulties reaching references.
