Foster families are the heart of our organization. At TLC, bonding with our rescues is very important. Rather than going to a shelter where they often become depressed and withdrawn, our dogs join us in our warm, comfortable homes where they thrive with attention and love. As soon as dogs arrive in our foster homes, we begin house training when necessary, and work on basic manners. Our foster families work to socialize and interact with the dogs in order to learn their strengths and understand their challenges.
Our foster program is what sets us apart. TLC pays for all the food, supplies and the veterinary care your foster dog will need. We also understand that fostering is a commitment, one that can last from a few days to a few months, so we work with our foster families to ensure a foster dog will fit in with their family and we work around their schedules so they only foster when they want to foster.
Our foster buddy program & training partners provide support to our foster families with any advice, guidance and mentoring they need. Our goal is to ensure that fostering is a rewarding experience so we provide everything you need so that your foster’s every need can be met.
