Foster Application

We ask that you review the Foster FAQ’s prior to submitting your application.  It is important that you understand GRRAND’s foster process and requirements, some of which may impact the suitability of your application (geographic areas served by GRRAND, fencing requirements, etc.).

If fostering sounds like the niche for you, fill out the online application below or complete the printable Foster Application and submit it by postal mail.  Prior to fostering one of GRRAND’s dogs you will be required to complete and submit the GRRAND Foster Agreement Form.

Foster Dogs:  As you respond to the foster application questions please keep in mind that some of these dogs may have been in neglectful and/or abusive situations and will require your patience as they adjust to a new home.  

Home Visit during Covid:  After your foster application has been processed and references contacted, a volunteer will be in touch with you to schedule a brief home visit to review the foster contract and answer any questions you might have.  We are vigilant about protecting you, as well as our volunteers.  We ask that you wear a mask during any visit and most visits will be conducted outdoors until further notice.  We will work with you to set up a time and safe place to meet.

Privacy Statement – It is GRRAND’s policy to maintain confidentiality over your information. We will not sell, rent or give your information to any other company or organization.
