What is a foster?
Foster homes are people who have temporarily opened their home and hearts to one of our amazing dogs. We provide all required supplies, training lessons, and medical care for our pup. In return the foster home provides the love, care, and training for our dog. Foster homes have access to our Foster Portal which is a website that includes tons of awesome enrichment, games, and training how-to's. Must be willing to travel to one of our Illinois vet clinics in Chicago, Libertyville, Wheeling, or Arlington Heights.
What is an isolation(ISO) foster?
Some of the dogs that come in need to be kept in a home without dogs for a set period of time. Some ISO dogs are sick with highly contagious dog-to-dog diseases, while others have only been exposed, but aren't showing symptoms. We follow strict rules to ensure diseases don't spread. Dogs that come through Chicago Animal Care and Control must go through a two week period to ensure they aren't carrying the canine flu. Most dogs are only in their ISO foster for 1-3 weeks. Must be willing to travel to one of our Illinois vet clinics in Chicago, Libertyville, Wheeling, or Arlington Heights.
