Fostering FAQ


How do I apply to foster a dog?

If you are interested in fostering one of our dogs, please contact us at dogofgyumri@gmail.com. One of our staff will be pleased to discuss the fostering process and provide you with any additional information you may require.

What am I required to do as a foster?

We ask our fosters to care for our dogs as their own with the support of D.O.G. This includes, but may not be limited to: housing, feeding (food will be provided by D.O.G.), and attending to the dog’s specific needs. Veterinary visits and other specialized services will be coordinated by the D.O.G. staff.

Does D.O.G. cover the costs of vet care?

Yes, D.O.G. covers all veterinary expenses. In addition, D.O.G. staff will coordinate and care for all veterinary needs.

What other supports are provided by D.O.G.?

D.O.G. provides all fosters with food, a crate, a leash, and toys. 

Can I foster more than one dog at a time?

It is possible to foster more than one dog at a time (sometimes we have siblings we like to keep together), but this is dependent on the specific case. We would never ask a foster to care for more than what they are comfortable with. 

Is it possible to adopt my foster dog?

YES! If you fall in love with your foster dog there is no reason why you cannot apply to adopt.
