Fostering Frequently Asked Questions




Q: What does fostering entail?
A: The foster home welcomes the dog into their home and provides food, shelter, exercise, training and love until the dog finds a permanent home. Fosters speak with prospective families about the dog, and when possible they bring the dog to adoption events to help it find a family.
Q: Why are foster homes needed?
A: Foster homes save lives! When a dog is in a foster home rather than boarding we have more space to rescue dogs from shelters that might be euthanized. Fosters find out about the personality and temperament of the dog so that adoptions with families can be based on those qualities.
Q: Who is responsible for Expenses of the foster dog?
A: Before a Lab is placed in a foster home we make sure the dog is up to date on vaccines and is spayed or neutered. Then the foster provides the basics such as food, transportation, exercise, shelter, and love.
