Foster-to-Adopt

These dogs have been placed in a Foster-to-Adopt home carefully selected from our adoption waitlist. This means they will be adopted by their foster after successful completion of a minimum of 30-60 day trial period, so we are not taking applications specifically for them. If you are currently on our adoption waitlist you are eligible to Foster-to-Adopt. Learn more about our Foster-to-Adopt program below.

Foster-to-Adopt Program

The majority of our dogs are placed directly into foster-to-adopt vs. a temporary foster home. These homes are pre-screened applicants on our adoption waitlist, and are required to foster for a minimum of 30-60 days before adopting. This process allows us to bring dogs into rescue quickly and efficiently, minimizing the number of transitions for our sensitive Shibas. It also reduces the time qualified applicants are waiting to be paired with the right dog, and keeps our more experienced temporary fosters available to work with dogs that require significant vet care, rehabilitation, or training.
