ARF Needs Foster Homes!
ARF does not have a facility to house rescued dogs, so until we do we must rely on help from volunteers to provide foster homes. Foster homes are extremely important in the socialization process of a rescue. A foster home prepares the dog for his or her permanent home. The dog is in a home environment with people, children and other animals, which helps make them an adoptable pet. ARF provides the vet care and food while the foster home provides daily care, exercise and especially love and companionship. We prefer a fenced yard for a foster home, but that is not always required depending on the dog. We also request the foster home be willing to transport the dog to/from the vet and viewing locations when needed.
Fostering is so rewarding, but how to say goodbye can be very tough. Here are some tips from Cesar Milan to help you get through the process that can help you save many lives by fostering.
If you have room in your heart and home to provide a temporary home for a rescue, please complete the questionnaire below or call ARF at 918-766-0991 to request one to be mailed to you. A home visit is required, as well as a signed Foster Home Agreement.
