Our Foster Process

step1 We’ll need you to complete our foster application below. As a foster, you are responsible for the daily care of our Underdogs, so we make sure to collect a bit of information on our foster homes. This will just take a few minutes to fill out and submit. Please fill out the application completely.

step2 Next, our Underdogs team we will be in contact with you to set up a time for a home visit. A home visit is a simple check to make sure that the dog is going to a good space. We will check for things like fenced yard, where the dog will be sleeping, etc. At this time, our foster contract must be signed.

step3 After approval from the home visit, we will be in touch about your new foster dog. You will be given contact information for important rescue contacts such as our Food/Supply Coordinator, Adoptions Coordinators, Vettinger Manager, etc. Remember- a new foster will take time to settle in so please don’t be alarmed if they are nervous or have accidents. Please contact us with any concerns or issues you are having and we will do our best to help you work through them.

Veterinary Information

By completing this section of our adoption form, you are authorizing the following veterinary clinic to release any and all information regarding current and previous animals in your care.
