Please be aware before applying to foster, that we request, if possible, that fosters provide QUALITY food(Blue Buffalo grain free Salmon/sweet potato)supplemented with home cooked, human grade food, for all of their foster dogs and to provide monthly heart worm and flea prevention for your foster.We will provide initial, full vetting at our expense but due to very high expenses/vet bills incurred by this rescue in our mission to save as many lives as possible, we must have our fosters provide some things for their dogs too, without reimbursement. You can let us know exactly what you can or can't do and we will take care of it. We want the best for these dogs and we give them exceptional care and ask the same of our foster parents. Being a good foster parent means helping get these pets ready for adoption by house training, leash training and socializing the ones that need it. By doing our part in training these dogs to be well behaved, disciplined pets, it is beneficial to the dog, gives them confidence and a feeling of security(dogs thrive when in a loving, disciplined environment as a member of the family), ensures a successful adoption and happy adopter and pet.Thank you for understanding and for doing your part to make a difference for the innocents.
