The confinement of a shelter or pound is not ideal for animals in need.  Most animals that have been

rescued or abandoned need stress and emotional relief so they may heal and be evaluated for a forever home.  

That's where our fosters come in.

Commonly Asked Questions about Fostering Dogs  

Q: How many dogs would I have to foster?

A:  You may take in as many dogs or as few as you wish. Even fostering one dog would help a great deal.

Q: Do I get to choose which dog I foster?

A:  We try to match the foster dog to the home it will be going to. If you require a particular size, or if you need a dog who is good with children or other pets, we

      do our best to meet that criteria. We encourage the foster home to meet the prospective dog at the shelter before bringing it home, to insure a good match.

Q: How much will it cost to foster a dog?

A:  4 Paws Sake pays the cost of all veterinary care, food, and other supplies the dog may need.

Q: How long does it take for a dog to get adopted?

We cannot make any promises regarding how long a particular dog will be in your home. On average, it takes between a week and a month for a dog to find a permanent home. A dog recovering from health problems may take a bit longer than a healthy dog.

Q: Will I be involved in choosing the dog’s new owner?

A:  We have found that foster homes are the best judge of what kind of home is the best fit for their foster dog’s particular needs. You will be involved in the screening process of potential adopters, in order to find the best home for the dog.
