Foster

Forgotten Friends is committed to saving as many adoptable puppies and dogs as we can, whether they are injured, heartworm positive or healthy. Unfortunately, finances dictate what we can and cannot manage at any given time. An even bigger limiting factor is the availability of suitable foster homes.

If you are reading this then you must at least be a bit curious about fostering a Forgotten Friends dog! We would like to give you some information about us and fostering to help you with your decision. Forgotten Friends began saving animals 15 years ago when the need for the rescue of mixed breeds was realized by our founder, Deborah. At that time, she was volunteering in a local shelter and through her experiences there, discovered the serious need for a group who would take these dogs.

Our group has grown rapidly and we have saved and placed hundreds dogs in the past years. Some things never change though, including the huge number of abandoned and unwanted pets and the severe shortage of space.

When you foster for our group, we pay all medical care for our animals as long as a participating Forgotten Friends veterinarian is used for the animal’s care. You supply the food, toys, treats, love and a safe haven for your foster until he or she is adopted.

You can choose to foster a special needs dog who will need time away from adoptions to become available for placement or an animal that you will need to bring to adoptions. Any house training or other time you would like to invest in your foster is great and will help them find new homes much faster.

To be a Forgotten Friends foster you will start by filling out our application below. We will speak with you about your particular desires and goals in fostering one of our animals and discuss any questions you may have at that time. We will then be able to help you select a suitable foster puppy or dog.

Thank you for considering fostering for us and for being a person who cares about the welfare of displaced animals!

The application will be used to establish base information for our records whether for volunteering or fostering. In the case of fostering, Forgotten Friends reserves the right to deny any foster if we feel that the home environment does not support the fostering of one of our dogs. We do not discriminate based on race, sex, creed or origin and are only interested in the best overall welfare of said animal.

By submitting this application, you certify that the information is true and understand that false information is grounds for terminating the foster relationship. This relationship can be terminated at any time, by either party after discussion of the situation with a representative of the group and after having given the group sufficient time to place the animal in another acceptable foster home. If for any reason you cannot adhere to the foster agreement, you agree to return foster animals(s) to the care of Mixed Breed Rescue. You authorize the release of all health records on any pets you currently have or have had in the past. You understand that any fostered animals in your care are the property of Mixed Breed Rescue until such time as they are placed in an approved permanent home in accordance with the policies laid out in the adoption contract and the adoption fee has been collected. Except in a situation where the life of the animal is in danger, any medical treatment must be approved and will be performed by an MBR veterinarian. The cost for any unauthorized non-emergency veterinary care will not be the responsibility of MBR. You agree not to hold MBR responsible for any damages caused by foster animals while in your care. You understand that MBR is only responsible for the medical care of the foster dog and that unforeseen circumstances may arise in which your pet becomes ill due to exposure to the foster dog, in which case the medical fees for your own pet are your sole responsibility.
