APPLICATION FOR PROSPECTIVE FOSTER HOMES (dogs and cats)

Thank you for your interest in fostering one of our rescues! We have no shelter, so we depend entirely on fosters to help us temporarily house homeless dogs, puppies, and kittens (we do not take adult cats in except under special circumstances). Typically, puppies only need to be fostered for one or two weeks at most; kittens and older dogs can require longer term care.  So that we may find the right home for the right animal, we ask that you answer the following questions as completely as possible.
