Become a Muttville foster parent

The foundation of Muttville’s operation is in our foster homes, where rescued dogs get love and comfort while waiting for adoption. Shelters often have very short time spans – sometimes as little as a few days – before an unadopted dog is slated for euthanasia. Muttville’s goal is to rescue these dogs from that fate. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can save.

How it works

Fostering provides a temporary home for a rescued dog until a permanent “forever” home can be found. It also provides time for a dog to adjust or re-adjust to living in a home, and to learn socialization and good manners. For some dogs, the foster home also provides time to recover from an illness or medical procedure before he or she can be made available for adoption.

What foster parents do

As a foster parent, you’ll be responsible for the basic daily care for your friend in your home. In other words, your job is to shower him with the love and attention he needs to prepare him for adoption into a permanent home. We will pick up the cost of any medical expenses and, in some cases, the cost of food and supplies. You’ll be asked to bring your foster dog to adoption outreach events and medical appointments, and to introduce him/her to people who are interested in adoption.

Before taking your first foster dog home, you’ll be assigned to a Muttville mentor, who will guide you through the program and help with any problems you may encounter.

How long will a foster dog stay in my care?

Time in a foster home can range from several days to several months. We’ll be able to give you a better estimate for your dog before you take him/her home.
