Welcome to the Detroit Dog Rescue Foster Program!

We are so glad you would like to foster a new pet from us. The following information is required so that we can assist you in the selection of the newest member of your family. This form and consultation with a Detroit Dog Rescue representative is designed to help us determine the best fit for your lifestyle with the dog’s best interest in mind.

Fostering a dog on a temporary basis is a crucial part to the success of a future adoption. The dog is given an opportunity to adjust to a home environment, and we are given additional time to find a permanent home.

We ask our fosters to transport their dog to any necessary vet visits, or future adoption events. If you are unable to, we have volunteer transports available to you.

Detroit Dog Rescue provides all food and supplies while the pet is in your care, unless you would like to do so yourself. All supplies you purchase for fostering are often times tax-deductible (check with your tax advisor).

Detroit Dog Rescue is responsible for all veterinary care of the dog while you are fostering it.

By filling out this application, we can match a foster dog with you and your lifestyle that will be mutually beneficial — you know you are doing a wonderful service to a dog in need and the dog is introduced to what a true loving environment feels like. If at any time the dog you are fostering isn’t the right match, we will take it back into our care and place another one that hopefully will work with your home environment.

If you decide to adopt your foster dog, THERE IS A $250.00 ADOPTION FEE

This helps us cover the spay/neuter of your new pet, current shots and temporary boarding of the dog. A homecheck will be required. A binding contract will be required to adopt the dog.
