Questions about the fostering process:

How long will I be expected to foster ? If it’s until a suitable home is found, how long do you expect that to take?

Fostering can be anywhere from a few days to a few months. Older mixed breed dogs can take longer to find homes for then say a small pure bred dog. We do sometimes have a need for short term fostering where you would only have the animal for a few days to a week. Most of our fostering needs are long term. 

What happens if I can no longer care for the dog or cat?

In the event that a dog or cat needs to be moved we would find another foster home for them to go to. 

Who pays for medical bills if they arise? 

Doggies Inc will provide all vetting for your foster animal. 

What should I do if there’s a medical emergency?

​You will be given the contact information for our adoption coordinators who are always on call to handle emergencies. 

Who is responsible for communicating with potential adopters, screening them and introducing the pet to them?

Doggies Inc adoption coordinators will screen  all potential adopters and set up meetings for your foster animal. Although you are not required to be at these meetings your input is important since the animal would be living in your home. 

Will I be required to bring them to adoption events and, if so, where/when?

​You are not required to attend events. If you can not make it to an event we will arrange to come get the animal and bring them to and from the event. 

Will you provide food, litter, supplies (such as a leash or a litter box), medications, etc., or will I be expected to?

All supplies are provided to you when your foster pet is dropped off. For dogs this includes a collar, leash, bedding, food, bowls and toys. For cats you would get a litter box, litter, scoop, collar and toys.
