What is a foster home?

A foster home is a temporary living situation for a homeless dog.  Our organization relies on foster homes to temporarily house our homeless pets who have been pulled for rescue and transport out of the state of Texas.  The foster home provides for the physical and emotional needs of the pet until the scheduled day of transport.  These needs include food, water, shelter and lots of TLC!  

The number of dogs we are able to save, depends on the number of people who are able to open their homes and hearts to fostering.


What are the expectations of a foster family?

Our expectations for fostering a puppy or dog are no different than what we would provide for our own pet on a daily basis:

The length of time for fostering a homeless dog or puppy depends on the scheduled transportation date and meeting particular medical requirements before transport across state lines.​

Please review the following information regarding foster expectations.
