Fostering is usually a short term commitment, most of our active foster families are willing to foster any recently acquired animal that needs placement in a home. We do understand that some families may have circumstances that may prevent them from taking a dog that might have certain medical needs or behavioral issues. If you have a strong preference for a particular coat type, color, size or gender, we will do our best to accommodate your request, but we do hope that you will consider any new intakes that are in need of a loving, temporary home!

All of the information I have provided is true and complete, to the best of my knowledge. Should an animal be placed with me, it will reside in my home as a pet. I agree to provide the pet with adequate food, water, shelter, affection, and medical care.

All medical care is paid for by Big Red Rescue of the Heartland while the animal is in foster care.
