Foster Application

Interested in fostering for Save Me Dog Rescue?

Fostering is such a rewarding experience. You will be a safe place during your foster dog’s journey to forever.  Whether they come from a home that can no longer care for their pet, or it’s a dog who may otherwise not see the outside of a shelter, you will be the bridge from past to future. Fostering saves lives!

To learn more about fostering, please see our “Fostering – Questions & Answers” under our F.A.Q. menu. This will help you to decide if fostering is right for you.

Your application is our best method to get to know you, so we ask that you provide us with the most accurate information possible. Please note that these questions do not have right or wrong answers, but are a way for us to verify that the dog you have selected would be best suited to your home and lifestyle.

Please also note, we will only be place our dogs in smoke free homes. This is something we look for during our home visit, which is the last stage of our application process.

    Please note that while the majority of our dogs come into foster care already spayed or neutered, some dogs may require surgery after coming into foster care. If your existing pets are not comfortable with, for example, a dog that is not yet neutered, please let us know this prior to fostering so that we can ensure that any dog entering your home is already fixed.

    Please note that if you have allergies to dogs, we cannot guarantee the breed of the dog without CKC or AKC paperwork. We make a guess on a dog’s breed based on their appearance and the recommendation of our shelter partners and vets. If you require a hypoallergenic dog due to allergies, please let us know.



    Please note that we cannot allow a home with dogs and/or cats that are not neutered or spayed (unless for medical reasons) to foster or adopt through Save Me Dog Rescue.







    (for current pets or pets within last 5 years)
