Foster to Adopt

It can be a big decision to adopt a dog and one that is made a little bit easier when you choose to foster to adopt! Fostering to adopt gives you the opportunity to have the dog you are interested in adopting in your home for a trial period, typically about a week, so that you can decide whether you would like to proceed with adopting them.

How Does it Work?

Fill out our adoptions questionnaire online and we will set up a time for you to come in and meet the dog or dogs that you are interested in adopting. In your appointment, we would discuss whether the dog or dogs that you are interested in are available for a foster to adopt.

If they are, we will set up a time for you to either pick them up or if you have another pet at home, we would bring them to your home to ensure they get along. We will bring all the supplies necessary for a foster such as food, crate, bedding, toys, bowls-the works!

Our Adoptions and Foster team would stay in touch with you while you are fostering to address any questions, concerns, and comments, and when you are nearing the end of your foster-to-adopt, we would set up a time for you to come in and adopt!

If for whatever reason while fostering to adopt you change your mind about the dog you are interested in, please let us know so we can either suggest a new dog or wait to see if a better match comes along. If you choose not to adopt while doing a foster to adopt, we will work with you to help find a better match next time. We would much rather a potential adopter be open with us about what they are looking for so that both the adopter and their new canine family member are in agreement!
