Dog Foster Care Application

Some dogs who come to Noah’s Ark Society are not ready to be adopted immediately. In addition to needing extra love and care, they have to learn to trust people and to live in a human environment. Foster parents help these dogs by providing a temporary home until the dog is ready for adoption. Taking one of these unique dogs into your home for a period of a few days, weeks, or months is a lifesaving gift to the dog. Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster parent.

To be considered as a foster parent, you must:
• Be 21 years of age or older
• Have identification showing your current address
• Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord (if applicable)
• Be able and willing to spend the time necessary to provide proper care for the dog

Completion of this **application does not guarantee acceptance as a foster home/parent.
