Home / Foster


We require fosters in Niagara Region to west GTA.

Each additional foster home allows us to save a life, giving one more dog the time it needs to find a loving forever home.

For families considering adoption but not yet sure, fostering provides an opportunity to try out the new addition to the family before making a long-term commitment. Please fill out the form below as completely and accurately as possible so that we may find the best possible match. Incomplete applications cannot be accepted.

There are no costs associated to fostering besides perhaps some kibble if we are unable to get you some donated food (location)
No  vetting is required all dogs come fully vetted.
You expectation is to give them a quiet space to hang out while they wait for their homes.  Provide photos and videos when possible to help with online promotion to help them find their perfect homes!

Niagara Dog Rescue reserves the right to reject any application and reserves the sole right in determining the best placement for our dogs.

Please provide three (3) non-family references you have known for at least 2 years that knows you as a pet owner or who can vouch for your overall responsibility:

Reference # 1

Reference # 2

Reference # 3

Rescue dogs have often been through a lot of stress & instability. We emphasize routine and training in a positive manner without the unnecessary use of harsh leash corrections, choke collars, rolling, pinning and hitting.

Do you feel that you can provide a routine and the necessary basic training in a positive manner (this may include teaching manners, basic obedience, solving a problem behavior and instilling confidence in shy dogs)?

Is there anything that you feel is important about your current pets, other people in the household, and your lifestyle so that we can appropriately match a foster dog with you.

Please advise your vet and references that you give them permission to speak with us.
