Fostering is an important step on a pet's journey to their forever home. A home enviroment is best for their health and well-being. Fostering dogs allows them to thrive in a home enviroment and practice forming bonds with their caregivers. For pets who have been waiting longer for adoption, foster caregivers can help reassure adopters that these pets are a good fit for a home and speak to the type of home or family that would be the best match for the pet.

Adoption Ambassador Fostering:
Our longer-term Adoption Ambassador program allows you to bring a dog home until they are able to find a home. You can advertise your foster friend to the public and also regularly send us pictures, videos and a bio we can share through social media! We provide all necessary supplies along! As an Adoption Ambassador, you will be a part of the adoption process for your foster pet. That means you can promote them for adoption and also meet potential adopters to find the perfect match.

Bow Wow Breakouts:
Our Bow Wow Breakout Program is a short-term fostering option that gets dogs out of the shelter for day trips (hikes, walks, parks, patios, office visits, etc..) or for a week of fun! You decide what time you want to commit to. All supplies provided. We want your great photos and info to share about what makes this wonderful pup adoptable! It's scientifically proven that getting break from the shelter, even for a few days, can relieve a lot of stress from shelter dogs.

To get started, please fill out the foster application: http://bttr.im/vjk4e.

You will receive an email that your application was received and can go through the short, online foster orientation while you wait for approval. Check your email for updates!
