Foster Care Q&A

Who can be a foster care parent?

Because our program is flexible, all kinds of people can help! We will work with your schedule whether it is part-time, full-time or seasonally, we have a pet that needs your help.

Do I have to provide anything to care for the pet?

While dogs are in foster care, Animal House provides all of the supplies and medications needed to care for them. We will also provide you with training resources and the support of our caring staff. You provide the love, time and responsible care in a safe environment.

Can I foster if I have other pets?

Yes! Animal House will match you with a dog compatible with your household members (two and four-legged!). It is important to us that everyone in the household enjoys the temporary fur kid!

I don’t have a fenced yard or live in an apartment, can I still foster?

Definitely! Dogs do not need a fenced yard to go potty and be exercised. We will provide you with walking gear for your foster dog so that you can enjoy the fresh air together!

I don’t live in Fort Collins, can I still foster for Animal House?

Absolutely! If you are willing to make the drive to Animal House to pick up your foster dog and bring it to and from events and other scheduled appointments.
