How fostering works
Foster families are an integral part of rescue, as we rely on caregivers to take in one or more of our homeless pets. Fostering opens up a space at our adoption facility and helps to transition the pet into a loving home. Please read the information below!
How Fostering works!
Step 1: Review which pets are available to foster prior to submitting your application or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are inquiring about fostering a particular pet.
Step 2: Consider if you are fostering a pet with intention of adoption. When submitting your application please state if you are fostering with the intent to adopt the pet. Click here to read about our Foster-to-Adopt Program. Fostering a pet requires all members of the household to be in agreement with the fostering process. No application will be reviewed without confirmation from the applicant that fostering a Ruff House pet has been discussed and everyone is in agreement. All pets in foster remain posted for adoption until they have been placed in a permanent home.
*Please do not apply to foster if you can only foster a non-shedding dog unless there is a non-shedding dog listed as available to foster.
Step 4. Submit a foster application here.
*Once your application has been submitted, expect a confirmation email within 24 to 48 hours. If you do not receive a confirmation, please email us at email@example.com.
