Foster a Dog
Help a dog learn the joys of home life by fostering. Detroit Dog Rescue provides everything needed for the dog, you just need to provide the love and care. If you’re interested, please fill out our Foster Application by clicking the button below and one of our Adoption Coordinators will be in contact with you within 10 business days!
A home check is required for all adoptions and potential fosters to ensure that the dog and your family are a great fit for one another. A team member will also assist with the proper introduction of your current animals and the prospective dog. A binding contract is also required to finalize the adoption of the dog. Please understand that dogs are not placed on a first come, first served basis, and we take special care placing dogs into families where they will be able to thrive.
To help cover the costs of the spay/neuter of age appropriate dogs, age appropriate vaccinations, temperament testing and temporary boarding of the dog, we ask for a small fee. Adoption fees are $200 for senior dogs, $250 for medium/large adult dogs and $300 for small dogs and puppies.*
*If for some reason you feel the dog is not a fit for your home within five days of the adoption, we can keep your fee on file for another adoption for up to 90 days. Donations made to Detroit Dog Rescue are non-refundable.
Sponsor a Dog
When you sponsor a dog, their adoption fee is waved for the next family. Adoption fees cover medical intake, spay or neuter, vaccinations and more. Dogs with waved adoption fees are 25% more likely to be adopted within 60 days as well!
