Type of Foster Home: 

Berlin needs an Advanced Foster home. If you've had a pet or fostered before, you have all the skills you need to be a Core Foster. 

Berlin is a happy, energetic dog looking to share her love with others! She gets easily excited when meeting new people and dogs so she would need slow introductions. She loves a good treat and will let you know when she wants to go outside. She can be frightened by unfamiliar people and objects so keeping a treat handy could help her relax a bit. Berlin is not one to share food or toys so allowing her to eat and play separately from other dogs will help keep her happy.

Berlin is looking for an active foster home where everyone is over the age of 15 and there is another canine companion. She would do best in an experienced foster home who can help her continue her training. 

How to Foster Berlin:

New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email to schedule a pickup appointment.

Berlin is available for foster pick-up through the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave

Why Foster?

There are many animals that need us today. Each foster family allow us to save more homeless pets by opening their home to a pet or litter in need of love and care for a few weeks. When we are able to send a pet or litter to foster, it frees up space in our Medical Center to bring in more pets in need.

Last year, our foster families took in 3,467 pets. Some needed a peaceful place to recover from illness or injury. Puppies and kittens just needed a bit of time in a home environment with good socialization so they could grow big enough to have their spay/neuter surgery before adoption. Other pets needed a calm and relaxing break from the stress of shelter life.

Consider joining them in lifesaving. Sign up to become a foster today.
