In Consideration of Your Time . . .
It is Pound Buddies’ general policy that we do not foster to homes with unaltered pets or pets not current on vet services; however, we will review foster applications on a case‐by‐case basis.
A Rewarding Relationship, A Serious Responsibility
Fostering a dog is a serious responsibility that offers much love and many lasting rewards. You are not only fostering a pet, you are adding a new member to your household. Pound Buddies Animal Shelter and Adoption Center strives to ensure that each person who fosters a pet is aware of, and willing to, accept that responsibility. The questions on this form are designed to help our staff make sure there is a good match between each foster dog and its new foster family.
Our Foster Procedure
Please completely fill out, electronically “sign” and submit this online Foster Application form.
Important Reminder: After submitting your electronic Foster Application, please call your Veterinarian by the next business day authorizing his/her office to speak with a Pound Buddies’ representative regarding your vet history.
We will review your Application and contact your veterinarian if you have had a pet under a veterinarian’s care in the past.
Upon final foster approval, you will meet with the Pound Buddies Foster Coordinator and sign a Foster Contract. We will ask you to provide proof that your household dogs are current on their vaccinations (including Bordetella [Kennel Cough]) before you bring your new foster home.
Foster Application processing typically takes three business days. If you have not heard from us by the fourth business day, please call (231) 767-0921 and leave a detailed message with your name, your phone number, the name of the desired dog, and the date of the application.
After three business days, you may also e‐mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the Subject Line, please type, “I am requesting my foster application status.” In the body of the e‐mail message, please list your name, address, phone, desired animal, and the date of your foster application.
