AARF Foster Home App

Thank you for applying to foster an homeless animal!

The backbone to our organization is our foster homes who have selflessly opened their homes and hearts to give a pet a temporary home until they find a forever home.  

We do not have our own facility so we rely on our foster homes to provide capacity for intake.    Our most urgent need is for foster homes for large and adult dogs.  



Adopting your foster dog is highly discouraged. 

Still, there are those dogs that just steal your heart from the beginning and you know it was just meant to be. Because this happens all too frequently, AARF has been forced to implement some guidelines on the adoption of dogs by their foster families. Please understand that there will be occasions when a dog will come to you as a foster with a family already waiting to adopt. In these cases, you will not be permitted to adopt the dog unless the adoptive family changes its mind. Your main job as a foster home in these situations is to evaluate the dog’s personality so we can ensure the dog and family are a good fit. However, if a dog comes to you without any firm interest by an adoptive family, and you decide you want to adopt the dog, you must make it known to AARF within the initial two week evaluation period or as soon as possible thereafter. Once an adoptive family has expressed a sincere interest in adopting your foster dog is not the time to decide you want to keep the dog yourself. This puts AARF in an awkward position and makes the organization look unprofessional to prospective adopters. Please bear in mind that adopting your foster does not mean you cannot continue to foster. Most of our volunteers and foster homes have a number of dogs and cats in their household.


 We are an all volunteer organization so it may take a few days to review your application and get back to you.  If approved you will be contacted by our Foster Coordinator.
