This page tells you more about our program and will help you get enrolled.
The mission of our program is to help keep you and your pet together in the event that you require unplanned medical care or rehabilitation. This involves planning ahead. Below we will tell you about the process.
Our goal is to make it possible for your dog to be in a safe and caring environment in case you have a medical need that prevents you from caring for your pet. In order to do this, we want to know about you and your dog ahead of time. We will collect information from you, and a volunteer will schedule a time to meet with you and your dog.
As part of our intake process, we will ask you to designate a responsible individual who will have access to your home and your pet. This could be a relative, a friend, trusted neighbor, or building manager if you are in an apartment. That person will agree to contact us if you cannot, and bring your pet to our volunteers. This way we avoid the situation where someone you do not know very well is in your home while you are away, and it is better for the safety of our volunteers.
Our foster volunteers have agreed to provide a home for your dog for up to three weeks. We ask that you provide the needed food and medication for your pet, a crate or bed, leash, and anything else that would make your pet comfortable. We will also ask that you provide veterinarian information and agree that we can obtain veterinary care for your pet if needed.
When you are better, we hope that you and your pet will be happily reunited again!
IMPORTANT, as of right now, we are in the process of gathering a sufficient number of volunteer foster homes, and then we will be able to take applications from seniors.
