Fostering is the ultimate commitment. When you foster with FFGDR, you’re opening your home, and your heart, to a dog that might need training, medical care, love, or just simply a quick layover to finding their forever family.
Our foster program provides surrendered dogs with a loving home that can tend to their medical needs while evaluating their temperament and behaviors. This allows us to make knowledgeable matches with adopters based on each dog’s specific needs.
The length of time a dog is in foster care varies based on the dog’s medical and behavioral needs. A foster home must be able to make the commitment to see each of their foster dogs through their care regardless of the length of time in which we get to make an impact in their lives.
Fostering is not a “fast track” to adoption. If you foster a dog with the intention of bypassing our standard adoption process, you will find that this is not permissible. Foster homes must go through the same process and meet the same criteria as our adopters.
