Foster

Thank you for your interest in fostering

Fostering is one of the most rewarding experiences of rescue. By giving a temporary home to a dog/cat or puppies/kittens in need, you are not only providing the love, stability, and routine of a home… you are creating the opportunity for the Rescue to save another life.

Our foster program is comprised of our Foster Coordinator, along with a team of experienced fosters that are available to answer any questions you may have. Once you’ve submitted a foster application, our Foster Coordinator will email you within 48 hours.

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.

If you have any additional questions or concerns please email foster@ruffhouserescue.org,
