                               Foster Application
Thank you for your interest in fostering for ColoRADogs Rescue and Rehab! We
hope this is the beginning of a long beneficial relationship for both the people and
the dogs.

ColoRADogs Rescue and Rehab brings neglected and abandoned dogs from
Houston’s 5th Ward. These dogs have lived in the most dire of circumstances and so
are not “quick fix” foster dogs therefore they stay in foster homes longer.
Generally 2-6 months in order to decompress, learn to be good citizens and find
their perfect home. Does that mean they are more damaged? Absolutely not! They
need to trust, need to learn what a home is, a comfy bed feels like and what it’s
like to roll in grass. Most importantly, they need to learn what it means to live in a
stable, loving home.

If you decide you can provide a safe foster home in which to help one of these
pups we thank you in advance for your exceptional compassion and for saving the
life of a dog that truly has no other options but homelessness and death on the
