There are five steps to the fostering process.
First, and foremost you must give serious thought to whether you and your family are prepared to make a commitment to fostering a Greyhound. All members of the family need to be supportive of this effort as you are bringing a new member, albeit temporary, into your home.
Here is the table of contents:
At this point if you have questions or need clarification, contact the foster chair, Carolyn Thomas, via email.
Once you have had all your questions answered, complete the online foster application. The online application is easier, takes less time, and goes directly to our committee. A foster coordinator will call to arrange for a visit to your home within 7 days to discuss your application.
Await a call from the foster coordinator with a Greyhound that needs help. Once your application is approved and a hound becomes available, your foster coordinator will contact you. Your foster hound will be matched to the situation at your home. If you have small animals or small children, an appropriate hound will have been selected.
Depending on the circumstances you might pick the dog up at the kennel or at a foster's home or the hound might be transported to you directly. You will have an opportunity to see if the foster hound "gets along" with any other pets you may have at the house.
At that point you will be given the Starter Kit and you're "off and running."
