Do you have a plan for care of your dog should you need to be away from home for an extended period?
Are you financially prepared to provide for quality food and monthly flea-tick/heartworm preventative? (Note that Rescue incurs cost for any needed veterinary care.)
Would you be comfortable fostering a dog with temporary medical needs? For example, caring for a dog being treated for demodex, yeast, ear infection, or immediately after eye surgery? (Note that most dogs need more love than medical care, but the Rescue wants everyone to be comfortable with his/her role.
Would you be willing to foster a dog with a medical condition? (allergies, thyroid problem, etc.)
Would you be willing to foster a dog with a behavior problem (chewing, separation anxiety, fear of thunderstorms, not housebroken, etc.)? Note: we will not adopt a dog that is aggressive or has bitten before--under ANY circumstances.
Please write any additional comments below. Use this space to also indicate any health or behavior problems that you could NOT handle (dog aggression, cat aggression, daily medication, etc.)
A volunteer will coordinate with you for a meeting and/or home visit. How should we contact you?
