Foster Home Process

Review our Requirements

Please review our Foster Home Requirements to ensure your situation meets our guidelines. You must meet the requirements listed to proceed with the Foster Home Application.  We regret that some good homes may be passed up because of these requirements, but we feel that this policy is best for everybody involved to take the dog and family’s safety into account.

Complete the Foster Home Application

Once you have completed and submitted the Foster Home Application, we will review it, and follow up with you on any questions.  If we do not have any questions, we will forward you our Orientation Packet to be reviewed.

Review our Orientation Packet

Our Orientation Packet consists of our guidelines and helpful hints when fostering one of our dogs.  This prepares you on what we need from our foster homes, and to to make sure that you are in agreement with our guidelines and policies.

References

We will contact the references that you provided on your Foster Home Application.  If we have any follow up questions, we will contact you.

Foster Home Visit

If there are no follow up questions and all the references are checked, we will contact you to setup a Foster Home Visit.  For the home visit, we will tour the yard, tour the home, meet your pets, and sit down with everyone living in the home to ask some questions, and go over our Fostering Program.  If all goes well on the home visit, we will notify you a day or two after that you have been approved!

Please Remember We are all volunteers, most of whom work full-time day jobs, have our own dogs and families, and are volunteering out of a desire to make a difference in the lives of needy German Shepherds.  We appreciate your patience while we work through the Foster Home process with you!
