ARTBAR is seeking residents local to our area who are interested in helping us save dogs by fostering them in your home. We pay for the vetting and provide you with food for the fosters. You provide a safe, indoor environment and begin to teach the dog housebreaking and crate training. We need foster homes for adult dogs, senior dogs, and puppies. If you sign on to foster, you agree to keep the dog safe in your home until placement is found. We may occasionally ask you to bring the foster to our vet for scheduled appointments, so if you can also help with that we would appreciate it.
Any dogs or cats that you currently have in your home must be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations prior to taking on your first foster.
Digital camera or good quality phone camera very helpful so you can send us new photos and videos of the dog while it's in your care for placement on our website to promote the dog, so we need cute photos/videos interacting with people/dogs for our website.
