​Become a Foster 

Fostering is a very important way to help a dog.  Fostering allows a dog to become familiar with the home setting prior to being adopted.  This makes the transition into their forever home much easier!

Fostering does come with one major risk known as Foster Failure.  Foster Failure is where the dog and family become so bonded that the foster family adopts the dog and becomes the dog's forever home.

We know letting go of a foster dog can be very hard but always remember we have PLENTY of other dogs who need fosters!

Some things you should know about fostering a TIRR Dog:

  • The application process for fostering is the same as the process for adopting.  You can find out more about that process here.

  • When fostering, TIRR Rescue takes care of all expenses.  This includes food and vet care.

  • Though not a requirement, TIRR Rescue does ask that you help a foster dog with socialization while in your care.  One of the main reasons fostering is so helpful is that it allows the dog to get out of the shelter environment and used to new places and situations.  If you'd like some more information on socializing a foster dog, feel free to contact us below.  You can also download this checklist for adults or this checklist for puppies for some ideas!

If you are ready to become a foster parent (or family), please download the foster application.  If you have any questions, please use the contact form below.
