Foster

DID you know?
You can work full time and still foster?
You can have a family and still foster?
You can have other pets and still foster?
You can live in an apartment and still foster?

You can be a student and still foster?

YES! Fostering a dog or cat or puppies or kittens doesn’t take much, just love and a desire to want to help save lives!

How does fostering save lives? By taking in a homeless pet that we have saved from a kill shelter, we are now able to take in another. It’s that simple. The more pets we get into foster, the faster we can SAVE MORE LIVES.

I’m considering becoming a foster parent, what’s the first step?

Please submit a foster application and one of our foster team members will contact you to answer any of your questions.

How do I know who to foster?

Our goal is to accommodate the needs of the pets and the fosters alike. We do this by discussing energy level, age, size, and medical requirements.

How long is the foster commitment?

The average length of stay for our pets is approximately two-three weeks, but we ask for a commitment from the foster family to continue caring for their foster pet until that pet is adopted.

What does the foster provide?

As the foster parent, we ask that you provide a loving home environment, and basic supplies such as food, crate, and other supplies (when available the rescue will provide certain necessities).

Am I responsible for vet visits and medical costs?

Ruff House Rescue is financially responsible for approved office visits to our specified veterinarians. As the foster, you may be required to administer medications as well as make sure that your foster pet gets to their vet visits if/when necessary.

Am I allowed to adopt my foster pet?

If you decide you want to adopt your foster pet, RHR requires that you submit an adoption application and make the Foster Coordinator aware of your intentions to adopt immediately. Once a pet is placed in foster, they are promoted for adoption. Fosters are still required to go through the adoption process which includes the adoption fee.

WELCOME TO THE FOSTER TEAM!  WE LOOK FORWARD TO SAVING LIVES TOGETHER.
