Fostering an animal is an even larger responsibility than adopting one in some aspects. Fosters must be able to show love and affection to a dog as if it were their own, but also be able to give it up to its forever home when the time comes. It takes a special type of person to foster a dog and One Dog More! is always looking for more of those individuals.
In order to assure that those willing to foster for us are up to the task, One Dog More requires all who are interested to fill out an application. Please click on the application at the bottom of the page to print out a copy to fill out and contact us for submission information, or fill out the online version. Once we receive your application, we start out by calling your references. Once all references are checked, we will set up a home visit. We will notify you regarding the approval of your application once those things are done.
If your application is approved we will schedule a time for you to meet the dog and decide it it’s the right one for you. Because we want our dogs to be in the right environment before being placed in their forever home, it is not always guaranteed that you will be approved for the dog that you have applied for. In this case, we will work with you so that the right match for everyone involved is made. We spend a lot of time getting to know each dog so that we can place them with the appropriate foster and/or permanent home.
All of our animals have been fully vetted. This includes all shots, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested and put on preventative, put on flea preventative, and dewormed.
One Dog More! will cover any medical expenses that the animal needs, but the feeding and other routine care is to be covered by the foster. We will provide anything needed by the foster: crate, food, toys, bed, leash, collar, whatever the dog requires.
Each dog’s personality is assessed to ensure it goes to the right home environment. While we do not give any guarantee regarding an animal’s ability to fit in your home, we take care to analyze the dog’s reactions around children, cats, other dogs and other typical occurrences within the home, and will provide an honest assessment.
