Foster Sign-up Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Question: If I don't have a fence, will you automatically reject my foster application?
Answer: Just because you don't have a fenced-in yard, doesn't mean you can't foster a dog or cat for us. Not all animals need to have a fenced-in yard. Our rescue evaluates each animal's individual temperament and needs to determine if a fenced yard would or would not be required for that particular animal.

Question: If I have never owned a dog/cat before, will you automatically reject my foster application?
Answer: It's okay if you haven't owned a dog/cat before. If you don't have veterinary references to provide to our rescue, we may ask for other personal references.

Question: Why do my own animals have to be spayed/neutered in order to foster one of your animals?
Answer: We require every animal in your household to be spayed/neutered because our organization sees the devastating effects of animal overpopulation every day. Additionally, animals who are not spayed/neutered often exhibit unwanted behaviors (i.e. marking/urinating inappropriately and territoriality aggression) when another animal enters its household. We want to avoid this.

Question: Why do my own animals have to be up-to-date on vaccines in order to foster one of your animals?
Answer: For the safety of your pets and the foster animal, it’s important to keep your pets up-to-date on vaccinations. All of our rescue animals undergo a medical evaluation prior to placement in a foster home, but sometimes health problems can go undetected or symptoms do not immediately present themselves. Better to be safe than sorry.
