Foster a Dog
Foster With Us
Freedom Street is an entirely foster-based rescue. We can only save as many dogs as we have fosters for – so we desperately need your help! We can provide all supplies if you need them!
We are seeking fosters who are seriously committed to helping dogs! You must be able to commit to at least 2-4 consecutive weeks.
We will be in constant contact with you, so please make sure you are good at responding to texts and/or phone calls.
You will have one direct point of contact at FSR during your time as a foster, for any and all your needs. We are here for you!
Love, Patience & Care
We need your assistance in crate training, house breaking and getting to know your foster dog/puppy.
Please note: We cannot guarantee that a dog will be 100% housebroken or potty trained.
You will be responsible for transporting your foster dog to and from various locations.
Reasons for Transportation
These include vet visits, supply pick ups, and required vaccinations. If you do not have a car or a flexible schedule, please do not apply to be a foster. Instead, please consider donating to FSR. We also love it when our available dogs are shared on social media! We rely on YOU to save these puppies!
Things not to do while fostering
- Do not change the dog’s name from the name provided by FSR without permission.
- No off-leash.
- No vet visits without permission from staff.
- Puppies have their own specific set of instructions and rules to follow.
In the adoption process, if a foster wishes to adopt, they are given our strongest consideration.
We at FSR often find that the foster or family who stepped up to save a rescue dog at a time of great need is our first choice for the adoption.
However, just because you are fostering a dog, we do not guarantee that you will be able to adopt that dog. We want the best fit for the dog for their forever home.
When we find a potential match for the dog you’re fostering, we will need you to be able to video record and photograph the pup during the process.
The potential adopter will also need to be able to ask you any questions they may have about the dog, such as – habits (good and bad), personality, energy level, etc. This will help them determine if they want to move forward with the adoption!
If you are interested in adopting the dog you’re fostering, you must go through the same process as all potential applicants.
That means submitting an application and going through the interview process. We appreciate all that you do for us! But we do not offer any discounts on adoption fees.
Thank you so much for your interest in wanting to foster! We genuinely appreciate your help and support and we couldn’t do any of this without you!
