Why Foster?


Fostering is the most rewarding part of animal rescue (in addition to adopting, of course!).  By fostering, you are truly saving a life. DSDA cannot take in more dogs until additional foster homes open up.  As a foster, you play THE biggest part in a homeless dog’s journey of finding their forever home & family.  The experience will change your heart forever. Please complete an application and our Foster Coordinator will be in contact with you soon.​


  • Must be 21 years or older with identification showing present address.

  • Must have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in the household.

  • Vet checks are required. All resident animals must be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventative (if applicable).

  • Must receive proof of pet deposit and lease allowing pets if renting.

  • Foster is home more than not.

  • Home visit is required. For this reason, we can only accept fosters that live locally in the Dallas area.
