Fostering for ODHS is easy!

Fostering a dog is one of the ways you can make the biggest impact with our organization. We will happily match you with a dog who fits your lifestyle and any constraints. Some dogs need more care and attention than others, but we do often have dogs who are already housebroken and crate-trained.

We provide food, medical care, and a crate. Our only requirement is that your foster dog attend at least two of our adoption events each month (though the more, the better). If you are unable to make it to our adoption events, we may be able to help arrange transportation for your foster. Our foster program is coordinated through an invite-only Facebook group, so you will always have the advice of our experienced fosters at your fingertips.

If, for any reason, you are no longer able to foster your particular dog, we can help facilitate their rapid return to our organization and/or arrange a different dog who may better fit your needs. Some of our dogs are adopted extremely quickly, while others remain with our organization for months or more. Our rescues remain in foster homes until they find their forever families, and it’s an incredibly rewarding experience.
