Foster

Help us save more dogs by fostering

CarsonRunningBecause Peppertree Rescue doesn’t have a shelter, we rely solely on our foster home network to provide a safe and stable temporary home to get dogs ready for adoption.

It’s simple: the more people who open their homes for fostering, the more dogs we can save. It’s a rewarding way to give to our organization and it’s a critical part of what we do. Most importantly, it’s fun!

You can foster as often or as little as you like. Our foster volunteers range from those who always have a foster dog to those who can only do it on occasion.  Either way helps us save more dogs.

What we ask of our foster parents

  • Complete an online Foster Application read our Foster Guidelines, and sign a Foster Contract.
  • Be willing to work with the dog to help them get ready for adoption. This includes housebreaking, basic training, socialization, etc.
  • Agree to actively partner in helping place the animal and make it available to prospective adopters.
  • We encourage you to attend weekend adoption events with your foster dog. If you are unable to commit to at least one a month still fill out an application, we can usually arrange for transportation to and from adoption events if necessary.
