Become a Working Dog Foster
During the day puppies will be in foundation training at the Center, but we need local families to share their evenings and weekends with their foster puppy to provide a warm, comfortable, social home environment. After approximately 12 months of fostering, your puppy will go on to his job at his permanent home…and you’ll get a new puppy if you’d like to continue fostering.
