Why Foster?

You can save a life. We have found this process to be extremely rewarding, and we hope you will give it a try. 

It is often difficult to assess a Samoyed's personality in a shelter. Shelters can also increase the risk of the Samoyed catching illnesses. Having them in a safe, home environment reduces the chances of such illnesses and improves their behavior assessment process. This makes it easier to rehome the Samoyed with the best fitted family, and it increases their chances of being adopted rather than euthanized. 

No prior experience is necessary. All you need to get started is compassion, patience, and a sense of humor. We will walk you through the rest.

Please submit a foster application below,

and we will reach out to you to complete a home check.
