Please complete this online form. Thank you for your interest in fostering Boston Terriers.
****Please note this is not an application to adopt a dog. This is for fostering only.****
Please fill out the entire application answering all questions.
This information will be important when we are trying to find the appropriate foster for dogs coming into Boston Terrier Rescue of North Texas.
We will not be able to approve any incomplete applications delaying the application process.
All foster homes will require a Veterinarian reference check and approval from the property owner if you rent.
A home visit must also be completed prior to fostering for Boston Terrier Rescue of North Texas.
Because most of the Veterinarians we currently work with are in the DFW, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Oklahoma City area we prefer foster homes nearby.
We will always consider foster homes outside of those areas on a case by case basis if we are able to find a local Veterinarian that is affordable and will work with a rescue.
