A foster family provides a dog with a temporary place to live until their permanent home is found. Fostering a dog is one of the most important jobs in animal rescue!
Most of the dogs that Coming Home Rescue takes into its program are healthy, well-adjusted dogs that will quickly transition into a foster home. However, some dogs may require a little extra TLC. Sometimes a dog needs a comfortable place to recover after surgery. A shy dog may need the patience, love and encouragement of a family to help develop better social skills.
The average length of time a dog is fostered in a home is about 3 weeks. Some fostering opportunities can last a few days and others longer. Although Coming Home Rescue prefers that a dog remain in foster care until a permanent home is found, any amount of time that you offer to foster one of our dogs is very helpful and greatly appreciated.
Coming Home Rescue will provide you with everything necessary: a crate, a collar, a leash, an identification tag, food and toys. You will not be asked to pay for any visits to the vet, medical care or medication - we will take care of that. You will also be able reach a representative 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with any questions or concerns.
We host adoption events every weekend. We want to give the dogs every opportunity available at a chance for a new home, which is why we'd like to have your foster dog there! We encourage you to stay and help speak to potential adopters - but if you can't stay, that’s OK too. If you are unavailable to bring your foster dog every weekend, we can arrange for other volunteers to help.
Are you ready to foster and make a meaningful difference in the life of a homeless dog?
