Becoming a Foster Family for DFW Pug Rescue
,For every foster home we gain, another pug can be saved. Recruiting and maintaining foster homes is critical for any successful rescue organization. Becoming a foster home is one of the most gratifying parts of rescue work.
DFW Pug Rescue brings in, on average, 10 dogs per week. We rescue dogs from North Texas and other areas of the state when needed, as well as dogs from the state of Louisiana where there is no Pug Rescue Group. Our dogs come from shelters, animal control, owner surrenders, and pugs found as strays.
In order to bring pugs into rescue, we need available foster homes to place them, until they are adopted. During this time, the foster family provides valuable information to us about the foster dog’s behavior, temperament and health as well as how they adjust to a home environment. The foster home also reports the pug’s ability to live with other dogs, cats, and children and if they would do better in an active adoptive home or a quiet one.
NOTE: Applicants, if you have personal pets, they must be up to date on vaccinations and Heartworm preventative before getting approval to become a foster home.
Responsibilities of Foster Familes
- Feed, care for, and socialize your foster pug.
- Begin basic training and house manners.
- Observe and report behaviors and needs.
- Transport your foster pug to the vet clinic if needed.
- Provide photos and biographical information for our website.
- Talk to potential adopters and arrange meet and greets under the direction of the Adoption Coordinator.
- Love on, hug and play with your foster pug!
If you’d like to be a foster family and your own pets have been spayed/neutered and are current on immunizations, fill out a Foster Application. A Foster Coordinator will be in contact with you to schedule a home visit and answer any questions.
