SPDR Foster Homes help give dogs their best chance at a new life.

On average, dogs remain in a foster home for roughly two to six weeks. The exact timing depends on the dog, on the number of qualified families that apply to adopt from SPDR, and on your personal preferences and limitations.

Interested in Becoming an SPDR Foster Home?

Currently we are only accepting foster home applications for these breeds:

  • Australian Cattle Dog
  • Australian Shepherd
  • Border Collie
  • Boston Terriers
  • Doberman Pinscher
  • English Mastiff
  • Wheaten Terrier


If you are interested in fostering any of these breeds please contact our foster home coordinator Clarice.






About SPDR's Foster Home Program

Foster Homes are an important link in SPDR's rescue and adoption process -- enabling us to retrieve more dogs from shelters, help these dogs with training and health needs, and give them extra time to match up with just the right family. 

What Does Fostering Involve?

Your goal is to provide a loving, structured, responsible, safe, and educational environment for the dog during this critical transition phase, while adhering to the policies of SPDR, which are outlined on our Foster Home Application.
