The most important responsibility in fostering is to provide a safe, loving environment for your foster dog and to commit to doing so until a responsible, stable, loving adoptive home is found for him/her.
Additionally, you will be required to pick your dog up when the transport comes in, typically early Saturday afternoons or Sunday mornings. You will be responsible for transporting your dog to and from the vet for medical treatment prior to adoption. You will provide Rover Rescue with updated digital photographs and will write a descriptive bio for your foster dog to be posted on the website within the first week of having the dog. Rover Rescue occasionally participates in Adopt-a-Thons on weekends at different Petsmarts for two hours approximately twice a month. There are a variety of other activities such as the annual dog show and summertime festivals that offer opportunities for your foster dog to get exposure. Although these activities are not required, participation is highly recommended. You will be responsible for screening callers inquiring about adopting your foster dog, and subsequently setting up an appointment for qualified parties to come to your home to meet the dog. You will complete the required paperwork for the adoption and will be responsible for turning paperwork and adoption fees in to Rover Rescue within a week after the adoption.
