Thanks for your interest in fostering!
Below you will see information for dogs who are in need of foster homes. These dogs are currently residing outside of foster care, and some may have special needs. Please visit the page for the dog(s) you are interested in fostering to find out all available information for each of them, and then fill out the foster application. All new foster homes must go through our vetting process, which involves a home visit and in-person interview with a Viva! Representative. To find out more about our foster process, please visit our main Fostering page.
Each dog Viva! fosters is different, and some may have special requirements, so an application to foster does not guarantee you will get to foster that specific dog. As we do with adoptive homes, we try to place each dog in a foster home that fits them well. This alleviates the stress associated with having a new dog in the home for all existing pets, people, and the new dog as well. If you have any questions, please fill out our Contact Form, and expect a response within 5 business days.
NOTE: Some of these dogs may not be available for adoption yet, and any adoption applications submitted for the unavailable dogs will not be considered. Only special case foster-to-adopt situations will be considered, in which the foster process must be completed first.
