If approved, I will be fostering for ESRA as:
A foster home for any ESRA dog that will fit my dog-handling skills and home environment. (ESRA membership is required. Click here for membership application.)
A one-time foster home for a specific dog that needs extended time in foster care, usually for attention to medical needs or other type of evaluation. I hope to adopt this dog as my own when it is ready. (ESRA membership is welcome but not required.)
Special note: If your intent is to adopt, you should first complete the more detailed adoption application so that you are entered into our adoption system.
