Fostering Dogs

So, you think you'd like to foster a dog for Pawsitive Match? Excellent! Fostering is a rewarding experience that helps animals in need by allowing them to live in a home, with a family, while we work on matching them with the right forever home. Fostering is the alternative to keeping them in an isolated, caged environment where they can potentially develop more issues as a result.

Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation does not have a shelter and relies upon its foster family volunteers to:

  • Provide love and care for the animals in preparation for their adoption
  • Evaluate the dogs and assist with matching them with a family during the adoption process
  • Arrange meetings with the dog and the potential adoptive family
  • Transport dogs to vet clinics for necessary health care
  • Transport dogs to adoption events

Fostering a dog requires a big commitment of your time and resources. You must be certain that your own pets will accept and get along with foster dogs. You must also ensure your pets are up-to-date on their vaccinations prior to taking in foster dogs.
