TAR Dog Foster Application
Hello! Thank you for applying to foster with TAR. Before you complete this application, you must go to tarnj.org/fosterresources to read about who we are and how we work to be sure that our foster program is a good fit for you, your lifestyle and your family.

Please do apply if:
-You are committed to providing a safe home for a dog until it is adopted, even if that takes months.
-You are kind, patient and understand that we are volunteers just like you and we really also like our homes and families and jobs and need time for all of that in addition to rescue work.
-You are committed to following guidelines around decompression, training, medical care and feeding.
-You are committed to addressing your concerns with us - through the proper channels - and not by posting things on social media. 
-You are going to work to try to get your dog adopted too. We provide tips and events but we do ask that fosters take an active role in promoting their fosters.

Please don't apply if:
-You have been banned from fostering for other rescues
-You bash rescues, shelters or are just generally mean or negative on social media
-You think that you can bring the dog "back" somewhere if it isn't fitting in. We don't have anywhere to bring the dog back to. When you apply to foster, you are agreeing to do it until the dog is adopted, which can take months. And yes, even if it barks too much, doesn't walk well on a leash, gets in a little fight with your other dog, pees in your house, etc. We will work with you on all of this, but there's not magical place to move the foster dog too. You are taking it into your home until it is adopted. Period.

So - if you're read the info at the link above and you fit into the first group, please continue with the application and contact us at info@tarnj.org with any questions along the way!
