On average, dogs remain in a foster home for roughly two to six weeks. The exact timing depends on the dog, on the number of qualified families that apply to adopt from SPDR, and on your personal preferences and limitations.
Fill out an online foster application to get your interest and information submitted and processed immediately -- this saves SPDR time and money.
Or you can download, print and mail your application to SPDR at the address on the form (this requires you have a printer and Adobe Acrobat Reader software).
If neither of these options works for you, call (206) 654-1117 and request a foster home application.
Foster Homes are an important link in SPDR's rescue and adoption process -- enabling us to retrieve more dogs from shelters, help these dogs with training and health needs, and give them extra time to match up with just the right family.
Your goal is to provide a loving, structured, responsible, safe, and educational environment for the dog during this critical transition phase, while adhering to the policies of SPDR, which are outlined on our Foster Home Application.
