Foster Application

The first step in becoming a foster for RAD is to click this link and read the RAD Rescue Policies and FAQs for fostering. Next fill out the form below completely.

Please understand that fostering through RAD is a serious commitment. Many of our dogs have medical and/or behavioral issues and some are older as well. Caring for these dogs requires time, effort, love and work. In addition the dogs will need help and patience to adjust to a new environment, new people and perhaps even other animals. You must be prepared and able to supervise them, and RAD Rescue assumes no liability for damages to your home and property. The dogs are under the RAD Rescue Inc. Foster Program and are under the legal guardianship of RAD Rescue Inc.
