As a foster home, we ask that you care for your foster dog just as you would your own dog. The joy of being a foster is that you don't have the lifelong commitment of caring for a pet. Your responsibility ends once your foster dog is adopter. The time frame for fostering varies greatly. Your foster dog could be adopted within a couple of weeks or many months. Bot all foster familes keep their foster dog until they are adopted. You are not obligated to continue fostering until your dog is adopted; we just ask for as much advance noice as possible (72 hours minimum to find alternative placement). We ask that you be available on some weekends to transport your foster dog to adoption events and also be available to show your foster dog to prespective adopters. We encourage you to continue working on basic training and leash manners to ensure your foster dog is well behaved and ready to be adopted.
You will be expected to keep the dog safe and secure, return him/her to DFD within 24 hours when requested to do so, and not promise the animal to anyone, or imply that you have the authority to approve a potential adoption without an adoption application that has been approved by DFD. DFD retains ownership of all animals placed in foster care until an approved adoption is finalized.
