To be considered to become a foster carer, please download and fill out the appropriate application form below and forward to our email with any supporting information. Please do not email the rescue in the first instance expressing your interest, we require the completed forms and supporting information to consider you to become a foster carer.
Our foster application form and foster manual should be reviewed prior to you submitting your application. Please read both carefully for an overview of your obligations as a foster carer and ensure you are able to commit as it is more than just housing a dog until adoption.
We rely heavily on stable carers to enable us to take in those dogs who need to be rescued or re-homed. If approved, you will be added to our database of foster carers, should a dog become available in your area.
Please carefully consider whether you are seriously able to commit to becoming a foster carer, prior to submitting your application.
Although we are based in Christchurch, we are looking for foster carers from all over New Zealand to add to our database of foster carers.
