How do I become a Foster?
The first step is to fill out our Foster Application that can be found below. Please make sure that you fill out the foster application in its entirety and include all phone numbers requested. This information will be important when we are trying to find the appropriate Foster for our dogs that are entering the BTRNT program. Missing information will slow down or delay the Foster approval process. A good phone number and email address is also necessary so we can communicate with you regarding your application to Foster. This information is necessary to conduct all required screenings prior to approval for Fostering.
We need the following information on current
and past pets:
♥ Heartworm preventative
♥ All pets are spayed / neutered
Note: Please notify your Veterinarian that we will be requesting this information so that they will release it to our rescue. This information is only necessary if you currently have pets or have had pets in the past 5 years.
If we are unable to verify the above information, your application may be declined. The spay / neuter requirement may only be waived if you are a reputable individual who competes in AKC show dog competitions or breed for the purpose of AKC show dog competitions and it can be verified or if your current dog has a medical reason preventing them from being spayed / neutered and your Veterinarian can verify.
Upon approval of your foster application, a Foster Coordinator will contact you via email or telephone to discuss our foster program and current needs for incoming Boston Terriers. The foster coordinator or a BTRNT volunteer will contact you to schedule a time to conduct the home visit. If you pass the home visit, you could receive your first foster dog at any time. You will need to let the foster coordinator or volunteer know if you will need a crate or any other supplies for your foster dog(s).
