Foster FAQ


What if I think I have found an adopter for my foster dog?

We welcome all efforts to aid in finding a permanent home for our dogs in foster care; however, all potential adopters must go through the adoption review process to obtain approval by Earth Angels Rescue. Please let us know if you believe you have a good candidate for your foster dog. We value our fosters‚ opinion as they usually know their foster dog best, and any input by the foster parent regarding its new home will be greatly considered in the outcome of the adoption.

What am I supplied with while fostering?

We will supply a leash, tags, collar and any standard vet needs throughout the fostering process. Items are typically delivered with the dog. In case of medical emergencies, please contact us immediately so we may provide you with a sanctioned Vet.

What, if any, are the training requirements for dogs I care for?

Every dog is unique and will have unique needs. Some will be housebroken, but some will not. It may take some time for your fostered dog to get comfortable with you and its new environment, so please be patient and consistent. Each dog will require a different amount of exercise as well, and this should be taken into account when choosing a foster dog. One of the founders of Earth Angels Rescue is a certified dog trainer, and we will be happy to answer any and all questions. We will hold your hand through the entire foster process.

What is the process for selecting fosters?

After reviewing your application and your preferences we will try to match you with the best dog. You can refuse any dog for any reason, but we ask you keep an open mind. Fostering helps save a dog’s life.

What happens if I am unable to get my dog to an adoption event?

We ask you make every attempt to get your dog to the adoption event, whether with you or a friend or family member. If this is not possible, we ask you give us as much notice as you can so we may attempt to secure other arrangements.

I already have a dog, may I still be a foster?

Yes! We love it when our fosters are able to make new friends as this will help to socialize the dog. Part of the fostering experience is to help shelter and stray dogs adjust to life in a stable home. When a dog is adopted we need to know how they react to dogs, cats, kids and everyday noises like the TV or vacuum.

What happens if I am fostering a dog, and I decide I would like to adopt the dog?

We understand this may happen, and welcome it as long as you qualify to adopt. You will have to fill out and sign our adoption contract. The standard adoption fee applies.

What happens if I am fostering a dog and it is not a good fit?

We work very hard to support our fosters throughout the entire process. We would first ask you attempt some training with your foster dog before giving up, unless you or the dog is in imminent danger. If it just not a fit, we request you continue to foster the dog until we are able to find a suitable replacement foster.

What is the fostering time commitment?

We ask for a minimum of one month to help the dog settle into a routine. We prefer the dog stay in the same foster home until adopted, as the goal is to give our rescued friends the love and stability they need until they find their forever people. We do understand this is not always possible.
