Foster a senior dog

Looking to add some extra sweetness to your life? How about fostering a senior dog from our Old Friends New Loves program!

These pups may have some grey hairs, but they still have loads of love to give. Giving them a cozy place to stay during their golden years is truly rewarding. By fostering, you will allow us to open up more space to save more lives.

WHat to expect

01  Flexibility

Got a busy schedule? We can work with that! Fostering one of our dogs can fit in with your lifestyle, whether it’s for a day-trip, an overnight sleepover, or a longer term stay. 

02  Expenses

AFF fully covers the cost of the daily care for our dogs while in a foster home. Food and any medication will be provided, as well as any necessary veterinarian visits during their stay with you.

03  Life Experience 

Some of our dogs may have little to no experience living in a home environment. Provide a chance for them to know the joys of a comfy couch.

04  Endless Love

Nothing compares to spending time with a senior shelter dog. With their extensive life experience, they make the best companions and even better cuddlers!
