 About fostering:

Foster homes are crucial for us to take in new animals. All foster homes are expected to provide basic training and care standards. We ask that foster homes be committed to their foster dog, as it is very hard on them to have to move to another foster home. We also ask that fosters help out with occasional transport of the dog to meet and greets or vet appointments. We provide all supplies; including food, toys, a crate, and bedding for the foster animal. Of course, fosters are always welcome to provide their own supplies and spoil the dog with extra treats/toys!

Fostering is temporary, but a very rewarding experience. Basically,  fostering involves looking after the dog until we have found a perfect, forever home.

We CANNOT guarantee that a foster home can end up adopting a dog. This is because we are always looking for adoptive applicants and it is unfair to let other potential homes down. We often find fosters will change their mind about adopting a dog last minute, and although we are empathetic, this is unfair to both us and other applicants. 

We rarely offer foster-to-adopt programs. Instead, we allow overnight stays or multiple meets for adopters who are having a hard time finding the right fit. We often have people wanting to foster to “try the dog out”. This is unfair for the dogs as it results in them being switched from home to home. 

That being said, if you do end up wanting to adopt your foster while they are in your foster care, we ask that you IMMEDIATELY notify us and fill out our adoption application. Seriously weigh the decision, and let us know as soon as you can. We are more than happy in most cases to accommodate fosters falling in love and wanting to adopt – all we ask is that we have notice, so we are not wasting our time, or potential applicants time. Fostering will not guarantee you can adopt your foster dog, as this is at Last Chance Animal Rescue Society’s discretion. 

 

 In order to be considered to foster you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be 19 years of age.
  • You must have legal identification, including current house address.
  • All current animals MUST be spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations.
  • You must allow a home visit prior to foster arrival.
  • You must be willing to sign our foster contract.
  • You must be willing to provide consistent training for the dog, so the dog is housetrained and knows basic obedience for adoption.
  • All fosters must provide consistent updates, and weekly progress reports with photos to our rescue, via email. Communication is critical.
  • You must provide a loving home and be willing to care for a foster animal until adoption. You must value its life, companionship, quality food, exercise and outstanding care.
  • If you are currently renting, permission is REQUIRED.
  • You must attach basic photos of your household and backyard in order to be considered for fostering.

 

*Please note: In order to be considered, all questions must be filled out in detail. Failure to provide the information requested will result in an automatic rejection of your application. Last Chance Animal Rescue Society and its Directors retain the right to reject or accept all applications. Upon approval, there will be a foster contract to follow.
