Foster Application

Thank you so much for choosing Detroit Dog Rescue!

Due to COVID-19, applications may take longer to process. Please be patient with our team as we go through each application. If you have already submitted an application, we are in the process of arranging call backs now. Please know that we are still rescuing dogs and our needs change daily.

Also at this time, we are only accepting applications for homes with no other pets because our team cannot facilitate in-home animal introductions. We hope to change this soon.

Thank you so much for your support and understanding during this difficult time as we navigate these protocols daily.

Welcome to the Detroit Dog Rescue Foster Program!

We are thankful you want to foster a pet from Detroit Dog Rescue. The following information is required so that we can assist you in the selection of your foster pet. This form, and consultation, with a Detroit Dog Rescue representative is designed to help us determine the best fit for your lifestyle.

Fostering a dog on a temporary basis is a crucial part in 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 that our fosters commit to transporting their foster dog to any necessary vet visits, or future adoption events. If you are unable to, we will do our best to provide volunteer transport.

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

Interested in becoming part of our Forever Foster program and helping to care for our hospice dogs? Find out more about the program here.

Detroit Dog Rescue is responsible for all of the dog’s medical care while in our foster program.

If you decide to adopt your foster dog, there is a $200 adoption fee for senior dogs, $250 for medium and large dogs and $300 for small dogs and puppies. 

This helps us cover the spay/neuter of your new pet, current vaccinations and any previous medical care. A home check will be required. A binding contract will be required to adopt the dog.
