Commonly asked questions:

How long are animals typically in foster

Good question! Unfortunately, there isn't a
magic number - the time varies from animal
to animal. However, you can help with that,
too! Foster parents are encouraged to send
us cute and fun photos, updated
information and fun facts, and to be
available for adoption events whenever
possible. This almost always speeds up the

And what if I need to go out of town?

While you are fostering, if you have an
emergency or need to go out of town, you
need only contact us and we will either find
a new foster home, a weekend foster, or a
boarding facility that can care for the dog
while you are away.

What if I decide to adopt my foster dog?

Contact us and let us know! But, also, when
an adoption application for your foster dog
is received, MHCR contacts you immediately
to make sure that you have not decided that
you would like your foster dog to become a
permanent part of your family. If not, we
move forward with the adoptive family. If
so, we move forward with the adoption with
you! Foster parents are still expected to pay
the $105 fee for canines, $200 adoption fee
for puppies 4 months old and younger.
