The foundation of The Dog Squad Rescue is in our foster homes.
This is where rescued dogs get the love, care and attention they
need and deserve while waiting for adoption.
The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can save!
Fostering provides a temporary home for a rescued dog until a forever home can be found.
It also provides time for a dog to adjust living in a home and socialization.
Some dogs may need time to recover from a medical procedure or illness before
he or she can be made available for adoption.
As a foster parent, you'll be responsible for the basic daily care for your foster dog in your home. It also gives us an opportunity to learn more about the personality of the individual
dog outside of a shelter setting.
The Dog Squad Rescue will take care of any medical expenses and the cost
of food and supplies when necessary.
You'll be asked to bring your foster dog to medical appointments, adoption events and to introduce the dog to people who are interested in adopting.
Before fostering your first dog you will meet with our foster coordinator who
will guide you through the program and assist you with any problems or concerns
you may encounter.
Time in a foster home can range from several days to several months.
Each situation is unique and will be determined by the situation of both,
the dog in need and the foster parent.
