Be Our Fosterer

PARTICIPATE BY BEING OUR FOSTERER

We often need Fosterers because we believe a home environment is the best one to rehabilitate the stray, abused and special-needs animals.We are looking for Fosterers who have a genuine interest in animal care and rehabilitation until we can find the animals their permanent home. These animals are usually young puppies, old and sick adult dogs or injured dogs.

We will provide some food for the animal at the start of the fostering. However, we seek your help and understanding in providing subsequent food for the animal so that we can better allocate our limited resources.

Purely Adoptions will provide medication (if necessary) for the animal during the fostering period and cover all medical expenses. The fosterer will be requested to bring the animal to our designated vet when required and remain contactable so that we can get regular updates on the animal's health and well-being.

Fostering Criteria:

1. Fosterer must be 18 years and above
Fosterers should be 18 years and above. If you are between 18 and 21, a parent’s/guardian’s consent is required.

2. Everyone in the household must consent to fostering an animal
Please ensure that the whole family has consented to the fostering of animal as the animal will usually be cared for in a foster home for a period of one to three month. Most of the animals we have are not pedigrees and may not necessarily be toilet-trained. Some animals may have separation anxiety or may bark excessively. Young puppies may also have teething problem and chew on your possessions. If you are staying in a rented apartment, please get approval from your landlord to foster an animal.

3. Minimum Fostering Period of 1 Month
The duration of fostering is usually for a period of between 1 month to 3 months. This is subjected to factors such as the animal's health issue and the adoption period. If you are unable to continue fostering the animal due to unexpected situation, please notify us 3 weeks in advance so that we could make the necessary arrangement to seek another fosterer.

 4. Prior Experiencewith Dog Preferred

The animals we have available are mostly street dogs. Many of them are likely to have suffered from some degree of trauma and may suffer from separation anxiety or bark excessively. Hence, the animal will require loads of patience and love to get better. On the other hand, puppies are often not toilet-trained and may have teething problem and chew on your possessions. It will be an added bonus if fosterer could train the puppy life skills such as basic commands and toilet training. This will allow them to be more easily adopted in the future.

However, being a fosterer is not necessary an easy task although it brings along much joy. If you are unsure of whether you are prepared to foster a dog, please click on this link to find out the expectations and commitment involved.
