Many of our foster families fall in love, and end up adopting their foster dogs. Because of this, we screen a fostering application, as if the family is applying for adoption.
This questionnaire is an attempt to learn more about you, your family and lifestyle to ensure the best fit with the pet. We thank you for understanding this! Any pet fostered through us will require a signed, legally binding document, that lays out some of the basic responsibilities of fostering.
To complete the pre-adoption form, please cut and paste the information below into a message and fill in your responses. You may send us your message through our Facebook page here, or you can email us your message to firstname.lastname@example.org .

Do you or your partner have any vacations planed or know of any deployment or field ops in the next 4 months?
Pet experience: Have you had pets in the past? If so, do you still have them? If no, why do you no longer have them (moved, deceased, ect)?
Do you have a secure fenced in yard? Please note that you must have a secure yard for a pup that will be over 15 kilos as an adult.
Puppies can be hard work. They need training and attention. They also go through teething between 4 and 8 months old. During this time they need plenty of toys and chews and may also need to be confined or crated while unsupervised to avoid damage to your possessions. Some pups may take up to a year to fully housebreak. Most pups take several weeks to adjust to you, your family members and your other pets. Are you willing and able to go through this period?
