What happens after I fill out the Foster Application Form?
Once you complete an application here on our site, your information will be passed on to one or more local rescues. They will contact you and discuss what their needs are and find the best fit for your home and schedule.
They will most likely check references, verify with your landlord that you are able to foster (if applicable), possibly verify your insurance, and most likely conduct a home visit.
From there you will be exposed to animals available to foster, either through organized online groups such as Facebook groups, or you may be asked to meet at a local shelter to meet some animals and see if any could fit into your home.
The foster homes are by far the most valuable resource a rescue group or animal shelter has, so they want you to be as pleased with the match as they are! After all, most people will want to continue fostering in the future, if their first experience is a good one.
