Foster Application
Applying to adopt a dog does not guarantee that you will be the successful candidate to adopt him/her. We are volunteer run and it may take up to a week to process this application. Please answer questions fully and honestly. Each application is reviewed with consideration for the animal's personality and unique needs. Answering honestly will better assist us in determining if you are a potential good fit for this animal, and aid in the adoption process.

Fostering an animal is a big commitment. It would be your responsibility to provide a nurturing and safe home for a foster animal if you are approved to foster. You will need to dedicate time to helping to rehab your foster(s) to get him/her/them ready for adoption. Paws in Need will pay for veterinary expenses, food, supplies, and training. *
We cannot guarantee an animal's behaviour prior to it coming to your home. We do our best to collect as much information as possible about each animal prior to intake, but cannot guarantee that surrendering owners will have fully disclosed everything about the animal's behaviour. As a foster, it would be your responsibility to communicate all information regarding the animal's behaviour to administrators so that an appropriate adopter or training plan be selected. Their behaviour in care is assessed and based on their actions and behaviours observed in their foster home. Transitioning to new environments can cause animals to behave differently, so during the first few days in your home, their behaviour they display may not be the behaviour we would expect long term. *
We cannot guarantee the breed, age, or health of the animals before they come into our care. All of our animals are checked by a vet, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed while in care. Any pre-existing health conditions (if any) that Paws in Need Animal Rescue Society has been made aware of by the vet, will be fully disclosed to adopters and you will be present for veterinary appointments so that you are aware of their health status. It is a good practice to keep fosters separate from existing animals in your home, until after they see a veterinarian for a preliminary health check. *
If, for any reason, I am not able to care for an animal after it is placed in my home, I understand that it is mandatory that I return the animal to Paws in Need Animal Rescue Society. I am not allowed to rehome or sell this animal to another party. I understand I do not own my foster animal and all decisions regarding it's adoption and care are ultimately up to Paws in Need Animal Rescue Society. *
By submitting this form, you agree that all information above is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge. The falsification of any information may result in the denial of your foster application. Should you fail to meet any of the requirements set forth by Paws in Need Animal Rescue Society, you understand that your application will be denied. Following adoption, if any of the provided information is found to be false or misrepresented, Paws in Need may remove the animal from your care. *
I understand that if I choose to adopt an animal in my care, I must notify the administrators immediately, and prior to them being posted for adoption. I will still need to answer all the adoption interview questions, and may be denied adoption if the administration determines that I am not in a position to adopt.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
