Interested in becoming a foster home?
If you have any interest in becoming a foster home for a dog in transition please come in and meet with us. We are actively growing our foster home program and are looking for new foster families. We often have dogs that need short term care outside of the shelter, or dogs we feel would be much happier in a home environment than inside the Shelter setting. Recently we are finding ourselves with more dogs than kennel space and being able to place some dogs into foster homes allows us to help more dogs. Fostering is a great way to help the dogs, and it's rewarding for the foster families!
Things for Potential Foster Families to Consider
You must be willing to bring your foster dog back to the shelter to visit potential adopters.
You will need permission from your landlord if you rent.
Applicants will be submitted to a CORI check.
You will make a difference in a special dog's life!
