Dog Foster Program
Fosters provide a temporary living space for dogs in our program while they await their forever homes.
We need fosters for all different kinds of dogs; including stressed-out shy dogs, those healing from medical problems, pregnant mamas, and, of course, pups who simply need some notes on their home behavior!
Step 1: To get started, fill out our Foster Application below!
After filling out our Foster Application, please sign our Foster Program Agreement. Once your application has been approved and your waiver has been signed, you will be contacted by a Friends of Strays staff member when we have a dog who needs your help!
Provide a safe, clean, and caring environment.
Provide food, water, litter, toys/enrichment, and shelter.
Provide exercise and socialization if appropriate
Monitor for physical and mental wellbeing.
Transport to/from any necessary vet appointments.
