(Note: If you have children under age 8, please do not complete this application. We cannot safely put a foster dog in your home.)
Thank you for considering fostering a dog with Indi Lab Rescue. Please cut and paste the application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Foster parents are not permitted to adopt any of the FIRST THREE DOGS that they foster but are permitted to apply to adopt subsequent foster dogs or other dogs in foster in other homes. Please know this going into fostering as the first three dogs you foster MUST be adopted out to approved families and are not available for adoption to you. This avoids skipping the adoption line and having new fosters get attached and make the wrong decision.
If you are primarily interested in adopting a dog, please complete our adoption application because you will not be allowed to adopt any of your first three fosters (although you would still be able to adopt another dog from us).
