How To Foster
All of the dogs with Prairie Pit Bull Rescue Society stay in foster homes while they are waiting to find their new forever homes. While in foster care, they learn basic obedience and manners. Foster homes are the most important aspect of our rescue, as they are the ones that help makes the foster dog more adoptable by loving and training the dog.
Fostering is an ideal situation for anyone considering adopting a puppy/dog but who is not sure how they will fit into their lifestyle.
Interested in Fostering?
- The potential foster parent(s) must be at least 18 years of age and all members of the home must be in agreement.
- For your current animals’ safety we recommend all current animals in the home be up-to-date on their vaccinations, dewormed, and spayed/neutered.
- Commitment to the duration of the time the dog is in foster care is expected. Foster care is generally needed from 2 weeks to 4 months, depending on the dog and time of year.
- Fostering a dog is a serious commitment for the duration of foster care. Please ensure your circumstances permit you to make this commitment at the time of your application.
- The process starts by the potential foster home filling out a foster application.
- Once we have received your application, a member of PPBR will contact you to discuss your application to make the best match for your home. This may take up to 4 days.
