My Way Home is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. We are not in business for the money, everyone who works for this business is a volunteer, we do not pay ourselves or our foster families.
You will have your choice about which dog you want to foster. We generally don’t intake dogs until we have a foster family arranged. We will not assign you a dog.
We ask you to pay for food and supplies. Sometimes we receive donations from the community which are then passed on to the foster homes.
We will pay for medical care. That includes all necessary vaccinations, spay/neutering, and if the dog gets injured or sick while in your home. We require the dog to have all of its vaccinations and a spay/neuter before the dog gets adopted with the exception of puppies who may be too young to be spayed or neutered.
You may return the foster dog if for some reason you can’t or don’t want to keep it. For example, if you bring in a foster dog and it doesn’t get along with your own dog or has behavior issues you aren’t equipped to handle.
Your foster dog will be posted on Petfinder and Facebook when you determine he/she is ready for adoption. Because we expect you will be most familiar with the foster dog, we may ask you to write up a short description to include on the posting. You will have significant input into the adoption process. When we start getting applications about the dog, we will forward them to you and trust your judgement in placing the dog. You will also handle the meetups and any home checks for the new family. You know the dog best at this point and we trust you.
