Becoming a Foster Parent
.Being a foster parent is an amazing gift to any rescue dog. It's also a great opportunity to see if a dog would fit into your lifestyle before making the commitment to adopt.
West Coast Pet Project needs volunteers to provide foster care for rescued dogs in need of a stable and loving environment until a forever home is found. Fostering can last from a few weeks to a few months. Fosters work with our dogs to help them over come any issues they may have. Many of our dogs arrive nervous and scared after their long trip to Canada and fosters are there to help them feel secure and loved. Our fosters find ur extremely rewarding to see the transformation a dog makes after being in there care and helping the dog find it’s foreve family.
If you think you can provide a loving home environment for a dog in need please fill out a foster application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
