Once we have your completed application our foster coordinator will schedule a phone interview with you. Next we will speak with the references you listed and your current veterinarian to verify all animals in the home are up to date on vaccinations and preventatives.
The last step will be the home visit by a BRAG volunteer. At this point you will receive a welcome packet of information with contact information and handy tips from our professional trainer, Bully Brigade and ALL Training. The transition from shelter to home can be VERY stressful on these dogs and we will set you up for success! If you have dogs in the home, a BRAG volunteer will be there to assist with introductions.
BRAG will provide all medical care in addition to providing supplies like the crate, food, leash and collar. If you can help with food that would be helpful but is not required.
You provide a safe home, love and guidance. We require foster parents bring the dog or make the dog available once per month for an adoption event and provide current pictures with an update once per month to keep the dogs information online current. How long it takes for a dog to get adopted often depends on the foster home. We strongly encourage you to start working on basic obedience, crate and potty training ASAP. Dogs that “have the kinks worked out” will be adopted much quicker. BRAG also encourages you to teach your foster dog a neat trick as this is a fantastic way to showcase your foster dog at adoption events!!
