Foster

At Texas Best Choices Animal Rescue, fosters are few, far and between. We are always searching for quality care foster homes, which enable us to provide help to dogs with special needs, certain behavioral issues or dogs recovering from injury. If you have always wanted a dog, but were not sure you could commit for the long term, fostering is a great way to enjoy a dog with only a short-term commitment. We have dogs in need of foster homes from puppies to seniors, small to big, and everything in between. TBC Animal Rescue will cover all approved medical expenses for our foster dogs. Foster homes get first “dibs” on the dog if they fall in love. We value our foster homes highly and work with them regularly to ensure the dog is doing well.

 

Who Can Foster?


The most important requirements are time and attention. You must be willing to include the dog in family activities, allow the dog to live as a house dog with much human companionship, and provide some daily one-on-one time with your rescue, including cuddles, play, and walks on leash. A foster home does need to meet the same home check criteria as an adoptive home.

 

A representative from TBC Animal Rescue will arrange an appointment to meet with you to review these requirements:

  • Fenced yard (in most cases – some exceptions are possible).

  • Live inside

  • Unchained.

  • Provided with adequate fresh food and water, clean, dry shelter when outside, and daily exercise.

  • Provided with a safe collar with ID tags to be worn at all times.

  • All adoptive families will obey all applicable laws governing control and custody of animals.

  • If you have other pets, they must be spayed/neutered if you would like to foster a dog from us. Your other pets must be up to date on all vet care (shots and preventatives).
