Fostering a dog awaiting his/her adoption is a very rewarding, hands on experience; one that truly makes a difference in the life of a dog in need, and one that we are sure will enrich your life too. You'll get to meet and spend time with a variety of dogs, all with their own unique personalities. Taking part in the happy endings when they find their "forever homes", knowing you brought happiness to the adoptive family and truly gave a special dog a second chance at life is rewarding beyond words.
We've not had one foster volunteer who said they regretted the experience.
Costs incurred while fostering (ie. medical care, food, etc.) are fully covered by HART; all you need to provide is a home filled with love and understanding for your new house guest. Volunteer coordinators are on hand to assist with advice, training suggestions and support. We're only a phone call or email away!
Most dogs requiring a foster home find themselves homeless through no fault of their own, but rather a change in their previous owners life such as divorce, a new baby, a new job or re-locating.
Most foster dogs are normal dogs with no major behavioural issues
