Become a Foster Home

Foster homes are our greatest asset and the resource we need the most. The number of pups MaPaw can bring into rescue depends on the amount of foster homes we have available. There is never a shortage of pups needing rescue, and for some, we are their only chance at a second chance.

We provide everything you need: crate, blankets, food, and medical care. You provide a safe and secure home where our pup will be loved and cared for until they find their forever family.

Please fill out the application below if you are interested in becoming a foster home for MaPaw. Once you have completed your application, please press “Send” 1 time. You will see a message framed with a green outline at the bottom of the application that says: “Thank you for submitting an application…”. This means that your application was submitted properly. If there was a problem with your application, you will see a message framed with a red outline telling you that information is missing.

 

A MaPaw representative will be in touch shortly. If your application to foster is approved, one of our volunteers will visit your home to verify that it is Sibe-proof and Sibe-ready. During that visit, the volunteer(s) will note any special requirements or preferred age, activity level, etc. for prospective fosters.

Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank you!

Please indicate the time frame you had in mind for fostering a Siberian Husky or Husky mix:
