TYPES OF FOSTERING:

Please indicate which types of fostering you are interested in: (Check all that apply)

TEMPORARY - approx. 1-3 days, these foster homes would be needed in cases where there is a timing issue associated with transport or for a scheduled adoption.

SHORT TERM - approx. 1-2 weeks; these foster homes would be needed in cases of vacations by other foster homes, some timing issues.

SURGICAL - approx. 2-6 weeks (may be longer depending upon the surgery); these foster homes would be needed in the cases of surgery recoveries, e.g. recovering from spay/neuter. Please note that if you have other pets you may need to have the facilities to keep the foster dog separate during the recovery time.

BEHAVIORAL - approx. 1-4 months (time may vary depending on the severity of the case); these foster homes would be needed in the cases where behavior modification is needed in order to make the dog adoptable. Our organization will have a behavioral trainer evaluate the dog and work closely with these foster homes. Please note that if you have other pets, you may need to have the facilities to keep the foster dog separate during the training time. SHRF will work to make the dogs in our care adoptable, but it is understood that there are some cases in which we are unable to help. In such cases, SHRF’s policy will be consulted.

CONTINUAL - these foster homes are willing to foster a dog until such time as the dog is adopted. The time may vary anywhere from 1 day to 6 months. The foster home will then have the opportunity to foster another dog once the original dog has been adopted.
