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.
