Frequently Asked Questions
How long will I have to foster?
We hope you’ll be able to foster until their adoption day! Every dog or cat is different, one might be adopted in a few days, and another in a few weeks. We appreciate at least a month commitment, however if you can only do temporary fostering we still encourage you to apply and make a note of it!
What is expected of a foster parent?
All we expect is that you provide a safe, nurturing home for your foster to become their best self! Spend time with them, get to know their personality, take loads of pics and vids so we can get them out there and into their furever home! Any influencers in the house? Social media is one of the best ways to get your foster adopted! Some fosters may require more training and patience than others, and we will do our best to pair people to animals accordingly based on your schedule and availabilities.
Does Samson’s supply food, supplies, and vet care?
Yes! We cover all bills. However if you would like to help extra and donate some food to your foster during their stay we would very much appreciate it! If Samson’s supplies any equipment (harness, crate, etc) please return it when your foster is adopted.
Can I pick my foster?
You can request whoever catches your eye, and if its a good match they’ll be on their way to you! Some of our more challenging rescues may require a second conversation to make sure there are no surprises, and everyone can feel safe and relaxed.
What if I work full time?
Many amazing fosters do! There’s a match for everyone. Maybe a sweet, sleepy, senior would love to snooze in a comfy bed until you get home…sure beats a scary, stressful shelter!
What if I fall in love with my foster?
We won’t lie… we love foster fails! We give our foster families priority when it comes to the adoption process. If you decide you want to adopt your foster within the first 10 days of meeting them we’ll even give you 15% off the adoption fee as a thank you!
