Become a Foster Parent for the Brittany Foundation

Are you interested in having a dog, but maybe can't afford it or can't commit to forever? Consider becoming a foster home. As a foster parent, you will know the dog better than anyone, and you can provide valuable information to help place the dog. By fostering, you'll not only experience the joys of living with a dog, you'll be helping a Brittany Foundation dog find his or her perfect permanent home. Dogs in foster care still belong to The Brittany Foundation, so they provide food and veterinary care while the dog remains up for adoption. Since the dog remains available for adoption, foster homes need to be local to the Santa Clarita or San Fernando Valley, to make transportation to adoption events feasible.
