Some of the dogs participating in our program require a little more help than others. They might lack the basic skills necessary to be a good household pet. Our foster program helps us connect these types of dogs with foster owners. If you can offer a temporary place and you think you’d enjoy working with dogs who need to learn socialization, house training, obedience, boundaries and other basic doggie skills, then you might make a good foster.
To begin the process you will complete the Foster Application below. Our staff will review the information you’ve submitted and contact you as soon as possible. Foster applications are considered on a case-by-case basis, as some households are better equipped to handle the needs of certain dogs. If your application is approved you will be issued a foster license from the State of Kansas (There is a $10 fee for the foster license). Then, after completing the foster agreement you’ll ready be ready to pick up your first foster dog.
