a short video we produced for your foster caregivers!
Q:What am I responsible for financially?
A:Your responsibilities mainly center on caring for and feeding the animal. A Home 4 Spot pays for all reasonable medical costs, provided no negligence was involved. In addition, if a foster parent cannot afford food, our organization will provide it.
Q:How long do you usually have a foster dog before it gets adopted?
A:Foster times vary, usually lasting from one week to six months.
Q:What does fostering a canine involve?
A:Foster parent responsibilities include:
Feeding and providing water for the dog.
Exercising the animal.
Bringing the animal to at least two adoption events per month.
Within the first week of fostering, sending us three pictures of the dog, along with a bio.
Setting up any requested meet and greets with potential adopters.
Q:Do I have to attend adoption events? I work on weekends or it’s my time with my family.
A:You or a friend/family member must bring your foster dog to adoption events at least twice per month. We want to find them a new home!
Q:What if I decide I want to adopt my foster dog myself?
A:You can do that.
Q:What are the adoption fees on the dogs and is it a set fee?
A:There is not a set fee. The fees generally run from $200 – $400, depending on the breed and medical condition.
Q:f my foster dog doesn’t get along with my personal dogs, what should I do?
A: Please contact Diana England at 702-239-7986
Q:What if the dog does not work out in my home as a foster?
A:You will need to provide A Home 4 Spot with at least three days’ notice, in order to give the organization time to find a new foster home without incurring special veterinarian boarding fees.
Q:Do I have to crate my foster dog? I don’t like to and never have used a crate for my own dogs.
A:We strongly advocate crating. Not only is it a good potty training tool, crating gives the dog a sense of security and a place they can call their own. It also makes the animal a more attractive candidate for adoption.
Q:How much and how often should I feed my foster dog?
A:Please feed the animal twice a day – once in the morning and again in the early evening. Please read the back of dog food labels for recommended amounts.
Q:Can I take my foster dog to the dog park and other public places not related to A Home 4 Spot events?
A:Yes, as long as they are socialized, comfortable around crowds and other animals, and you have control of the dog.
Q:Who do I contact and where do I take my foster dog if they need to go to the vet?
A: Cheyenne Tonopah Animal Hospital, 3348 n rancho dr, las vegas, nv 89130 is the vet that A Home 4 Spot pays for. Their phone number is 702-264-3036
