Fostering a dog means saving a dogs life. A foster home is a temporary, safe home for the dogs to stay while in our care. Fostering dogs is a vital part of our dog rescue and we can never have enough foster homes for all of the dogs that need them. The more approved foster homes we have the more dogs that we can save. This is their chance to blossom and recover; a foster home is the bridge between their past life, and into their new forever life.
To foster, you must fill out an application and submit it and be approved. We strive to match our foster homes with the perfect foster dog and placement depends on multiple factors, such as the family, lifestyle, energy and activity levels of both the dog and home. Fosters are never made to take a dog they may be uncomfortable with. Fostering does not cost a thing, we supply all vetting, toys, food, etc. All you need to provide is your love, attention and home.
We realize opening your heart and home to a foster dog and then letting them go to their forever home is hard and sad, but please consider, that it is sadder to let them sit in a shelter or die because we just simply didn’t have enough foster homes for them to rest while their forever home was found. Please consider fostering today with Canadian Odd Squad and help us save more lives. Without foster homes, we could simply not do what we do.
Fostering a dog is not a life time commitment; it’s a commitment to saving a life.
Please note that we do require all animals in the home to be up to date on their core vaccines, and spayed/neutered for both the health of the animals in our care, and your own personal animals.
In addition, should your application be successful a copy of formal ID matching the name of the application will be required for our records.
