A foster home is an approved, temporary living situation for pets in our program while they are awaiting adoption. Foster families provide shelter, care and love. LDRNT provides a kennel, bed, collar, harness, leash, preventatives, probiotics, approved veterinary care and food. All animals in our foster program are fully vetted, microchipped, and spayed/neutered before foster care unless their health prohibits immediate spay/neuter.

The number of animals we can save depends entirely on the number of people who open their homes and hearts to foster them. Fostering also allows you to spend time getting to know our adoptable dogs in the event you decide you want to open up your home permanently. Fosters are usually considered first for the adoption of the dog they foster.

If you are interested in fostering a little dog (or two!) for Little Dog Rescue of North Texas, please complete the Foster Application below and one of our volunteers will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Thank you for your interest in Little Dog Rescue of North Texas!

Please note: Sometimes we ask for a “Twilight” or “Hospice” foster when a terminally ill or elderly dog ends up alone without a home. These fosters open up their homes so that these ill or elderly dogs can live comfortably until the end of their life. Little Dog Rescue of North Texas pays for everything, including prescriptions (or prescription food) and approved or emergency veterinary care. A dog who goes into Twilight or Hospice foster is fully vetted, microchipped, and (if their health allows) spayed or neutered.
