Fostering a dog enriches the lives of everyone involved. Fostering is where a dog can learn that it is loved. Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR) relies on foster homes to not only provide a safe place to stay, but to provide everyday care, affection and socialization, until a permanent family comes along who will love them forever.
With close support and assistance from SCCR, here is an example of what a foster home is responsible for:
- Caring for a dog as your own until it finds it forever home (this can vary in length from dog to dog)
- Bringing your foster dog to the veterinarian for care as seen fit and scheduled by Medical Coordinator
- Bringing your foster dog to Adoption Events, or Adoption Center for potential forever homes to meet
- Answering questions about your foster dog for potential adopters at Adoption Events (or occasionally via email or phone)
- Teaching your foster dog how to live in a home environment
- Working with the SCCR Board, Trainer, or Foster Buddy if any behavioral concerns arise (housebreaking, chewing, etc.)
- Communicating with the SCCR Board and Adoption Counselors regarding any specific needs your foster dog might have
If interested in fostering a dog, please complete the application below. Once submitted, SCCR will review and schedule an in-depth foster orientation.
SCCR does NOT discriminate. All breeds, ages, sizes, and colors are welcomed and loved.
Note: Due to health & safety concerns during COVID-19, the foster home must have access to transportation to pick-up the dog and supplies, as well as transport the dog to medical and adoption appointments.
