GMPR Foster Application
Use this form to submit an application to provide care to dogs for GMPR. After your application is received, we will have a volunteer contact you to schedule a home visit. Please allow at 3-5 business days for us to arrange a volunteer.

Foster homes are crucial to our rescue group, thanks for helping!

We need foster homes in Northern NY area, all of Vermont, New Hampshire and Western Maine (South or West of Augusta). If you want to assist us in short term care or long term care, complete and send us this form.

GMPR does not have a "shelter". All of our surrenders go directly to an approved and inspected foster home where they will receive any medical care necessary and lots of love and support. Being a foster is challenging. A foster is the one who will get the pug(s) ready for their new homes.

Many of our rescue pugs come to us with health issues, some minor, some major. GMPR will cover approved costs of caring for GMPR pugs, including veterinarian expenses and food. Many of our foster homes do decide to provide their own food for pugs in GMPR's care as part of their support to GMPR.

We are always in need of loving, caring, committed foster homes. Our ability to rescue depends greatly on having fosters who will answer the call when needed. It is a huge, but rewarding responsibility. Please volunteer if you are ready for that commitment.

NOTE: We do not offer a foster-to-adopt program, please only submit a foster application if you are serious about volunteering to care for GMPR pugs with the expectation that another family will be adopting your GMPR dog.

I agree to allow a representative from Green Mountain Pug Rescue perform a home inspection and conduct an interview with me and my family members. I understand that Green Mountain Pug Rescue will contact my veterinarian, my references, and if applicable, my landlord. My application will be approved or declined based upon the home visit report, the information provided by my references, my veterinarian, my landlord, and my suitability, in GMPR’s opinion, as a potential foster family. I will be informed by the Adoption Coordinator as to whether or not my application has been approved or declined. I am of legal age and have the income and ability to take care of a GMPR Pug. All statements I have made in this application are true and I understand that this application may be rejected if any of the information I have supplied above is found to be false.
