Foster with Do Over Dogs

Do Over Dogs is a 100% foster-based, volunteer rescue. By providing each animal with a host family and a loving home, we believe our rescue dogs can begin to adjust to the lives they deserve. Do Over Dogs' fostering program is at no cost to you – we provide all food, supplies, and medical care. Finally, fostering is a wonderful chance to save a life without the full-on commitment of adding a permanent family member. Inquire today about fostering with us!

Hi, I would like to welcome you to the Do Over Dogs family. It takes a special person to foster dogs and puppies. There is a lot of time and commitment that goes with fostering. I do realize how much work and time is involved with fostering. Puppies are a lot of work and dogs can take a while to be adopted out. But if we can save just one life isn’t it worth it? The feeling you get when you save a life is priceless!

The safety of our rescued dogs and your satisfaction in our foster program is our utmost concern. While this may be a long application, we know you understand why it is important for us to get to know you! Thank you for taking the time to complete it in full detail.

Quality of Life

Training Philosophy

We believe in only positive reinforcement we do not knowingly adopt our dogs to homes where short sighted, relationship harming techniques or methods are utilized, such as invisible or electric fences, choke or prong collars, electronic or bark collars. We recommend a harness for comfort and control, and can make one available to you. We deplore the use of de-barking as barbaric and cruel.

Positive and consistent training is associated with fewer behavior problems and greater obedience than methods that involve punishment and/or encourage human dominance.

The Do Over Dogs A second Chance At Life does not knowingly place our foster dogs in homes where short sighted, relationship harming techniques or methods are utilized, such as invisible or electric fences, choke or prong collars, electronic or bark collars. We furnish a harness for comfort and control.

The Do Over Dogs A Second Chance At Life depends solely on foster homes to help us rescue dogs. Fosters are highly needed and valued. We are committed to supporting our fosters to enhance their rescue experience and to guarantee that each dog is adoptable and adopted.

We do our best to match your needs as a foster with our dog’s needs. If questions arise, we are ALWAYS here to help you, and offer FREE help in the form of behavioral training classes, such as Understanding Dogs Training Class.

Foster Contract

We need you to bring the foster dog to all Do Over Dogs adoption events. If you are unable to do so, contact someone from Do Over Dogs to make arrangements for the dog to be available for pickup and drop off by another Do Over Dogs volunteer.

Veterinarian information:
I understand that Do Over Dogs has veterinarians that provide discounted services. Because of this, all non-emergency vet care must be approved in advance by a Do Over Dogs Board member (contact information is attached to this letter). This includes routine exams, vaccinations, dental care, spaying or neutering, treatment for coughing, diarrhea, cherry eye, etc. In the event of an emergency, I will make every effort to reach a Board member to help determine the best course of action. If this is not possible or a Board member can’t be reached quickly, I will take the dog to a vet. I understand that the medical history of foster dogs is frequently unknown, and therefore it is in my best interest to have other dogs in my home up to date on routine vaccinations. Do Over Dogs will not be responsible for illnesses contracted or vet costs incurred by my dogs during or after fostering.
Initial

Local Laws: I agree to adhere to all relevant zoning and animal control codes and ordinances whether local, county or state.

If at any time you need to leave town or have plans & need us take your foster, please give us as much advance notice as possible. We understand things happen, but would appreciate as much notice as you can give.

Adoption Application:
I understand that Do Over Dogs processes all adoption applications in the order they are received. The goal is always the best match for the dog. I understand that if I would like to adopt the dog that I am fostering, I need to submit an adoption application as soon as I have made up my mind. My application will be processed as any other application, in the order it was received, and will not be given priority over an application submitted ahead of mine.
