Our potential foster homes are expected to provide vet references and show they are committed to their own pets care. Potential fosters must prove proof all animals in the home have been fixed and are UTD on shots unless advised by your vet that doing so could cause harm.
We prefer our dog fosters be “experienced pet owners”, over the age of 21 years old and have a fenced in back yard.
Fosters must agree that at NO TIME are any of our animals to be chained up or live outside or “just kept in a cage”. If you want to foster an animal from Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue the animal MUST live inside and be part of your family until it finds its forever home and provide basic training. (potty training, sit, down, stay, paw). You must provide foster home reports every week t ou foster coordiator on said foster.
While fostering for Wags 2 Wishes you MAY NOT foster for another rescue group / shelter while our foster is in your home. This is our policy, so please consider this BEFORE applying.
Ideally fosters should reside in the Will County Area, within 30-40 minutes of Joliet IL or the Gurnee, IL area. Fosters are also expected to transport animals to vet appointments, adoption events and “meet and greets”. when needed (2-3 times a month). If you are unable to do this, please speak with your assigned Foster Care Specialist in advance so other arrangements can be made.
If you are onboard and ready to foster please complete the Foster Application below. Please understand this is Step 1 of the foster process, if approved a meet with your entire family including existing animals will need to take place in your home. A foster contract will be required.
