Did you know there are different ways to foster? Well there are! And one of these just might work for you!
You complete the foster application and once approved, we help you select a dog that needs your help. It may be a dog that needs socialization, possibly help housetraining and/or leash training, a dog is on medication or recooperating from a surgery or illness.
FOSTER TO ADOPT
This foster program is perfect for people who are not really sure how a dog will fit into their world and they want to be sure before they actually adopt. You apply to be a foster and together we select the dog. You take the dog home and get to know the dog. You will be able to see first hand how that dog fits into your home. You have 2 weeks to decide if you wish to adopt or not. You will need to let us know as soon as you make your decision. Either way is fine with us. If you choose to adopt, you will come to the rescue and complete the final paperwork and pay the adoption fee. If you choose not to adopt, we do ask that you keep the dog as a foster until we can find it a permanent home. It is difficult for the dogs to keep moving around so we limit that as much as possible.
foster by the hour
Don't have much time? Can't take a dog home with you? But you want to spend some time with a dog? This might be the perfect choice for you! You decide how much time you want to spend with the dog!
It can be something as simple as picking the dog up for an hour or two to go to Dairy Queen and get the dog a pup cup (and get yourself something too of course!)
Or it can be a few hours to go to Grays Lake and take the dog for a nice walk.
Or you can do an overnight or a weekend!
The choice is yours!
You still have to apply and be approved to be a foster. We will help you select the dog that can go with you as we want a dog that will be able to have fun with you for a short time!
foster to rehome your own dog
This is a perfect option for people who need to have their dog find another home but don't feel comfortable taking the dog to a shelter or rescue. It is much easier on the dog to only have to move once. Your home is the best place for the dog to wait while we find them a new home. You still have to complete the foster application. You also would need to complete an owner surrender which gives Second Chance ownership of the dog. We would need to see paperwork that the dog has had a vet exam, spayed or neutered and current on medication before the dog can be adopted out. We will do that IF it is at our vet. You MUST follow through when we find an adopter. And that can be very difficult when you love the dog.
