PHS offers a foster option for all potential dog adopters. In order to foster a pet, we require an approved adoption application, a $50.00 deposit as well as a completed Foster Application Form. You will sign a brief Foster Contract that explains your responsibilities during the foster period. Upon completion, potential adopters will be able to take a dog they are interested home for seven days to "test the water" with their new pet. All dogs will be spayed/neutered before they can leave the shelter on foster.
Some animals behave differently once they are out of the shelter environment. This option allows foster applicants to see how a certain dog reacts to their home environment. If, for any reason, the foster does not work out, the foster applicant can get their deposit back upon return of the animal. The $50.00 deposit can also be applied to the adoption fee if the applicant decides to adopt their chosen new fur-baby.
