Foster Program

 

Can you give a helpless dog from a shelter a temporary, loving home to stay in?

 

BECOME A FOSTER

 

  • Help a friendly dog escape the stressful shelter environment.

  • Work together with Halfway Hounds trainers to train and rehabiliate a dog.

  • A great way to test-drive a dog you are considering add a dog to your family.

 

We are looking for fosters to help us rehabilitate, train and nurture these rescued dogs. Fostering can last from two to six weeks. After a two week quarantine period, most dogs can be moved to a kennel if you can no longer keep them in your home. All dogs are safe to handle. All food, medical and other expenses are covered. You will get full 24/7 support from Halfway Hounds during your foster experience. Please give a dog a chance to know what a home environment is really like.

 

To apply, complete our online foster application.  

 

You can also email us at foster@halfwayhounds.org or download an application now.

WHAT'S INVOLVED IN BEING A FOSTER?

 

You are ready to foster if…

 

  • Your own pets are up-to-date on vaccinations

  • Your own pets have been spayed/neutered

  • You have adequate space (crates are highly recommended)

  • You agree to keep your foster dogs as indoor pets

  • You are ready to make a time commitment to each foster dog from day 1 through adoption

  • You agree to follow the policies, procedures and guidelines that have been set for Halfway Hounds foster volunteers

 

Here is how foster care works:

 

  1. Halfway Hounds receives a dog directly from a shelter or surrendered by an owner.

  2. Foster homes are called.  If we contact you to foster an animal and you cannot do it for any reason, we will find another foster home and call you the next time. It's always okay to say you are not available.

  3. The dog is transported to the foster home and lives there until they are transferred to a kennel or adopted. You will need to make the pet available to meet with families interested in adopting.
