Thank you for offering to open your home and heart up to help foster one of our dogs. Please complete our foster application and one of our volunteers will contact you shortly. We will supply you with everything the dog needs while in your care. Food, bed, crate, toys, and we will handle all medical for the dog. If there is anything you need as a foster, just notify us and we will make every attempt to get the item or help you in any way. We hope that you will enjoy fostering a dog in need, and the satisfaction of knowing they have found their forever home is what makes it all worthwhile.

Although Four Paws will attempt to give an honest evaluation of temperament of any dog you are asked to foster, please understand that the history of a rescue dog may not be known and you may encounter some behavioral problems. Once placed in a new environment, most dogs need an adjustment period and additional training in order to fit into their new home. We can also never guarantee that a dog is 100% house trained. I understand that it is my responsibility to provide this adjustment period and training, and to be as flexible and understanding as possible. I also agree that if it does not work out, that I will give Four Paws at least 72 hours notice to find another foster home for the dog I am fostering.
