Foster Application

Foster homes are the lifeline of rescue groups. Without new loving foster homes, the number of bullies that can be saved is very limited. Giving a homeless pet a temporary loving home is what keeps them away from high kill shelters and the busy dangerous streets of Houston, and surrounding areas. What we look in a foster is a loving, patient, caring and protective temporary parent. These babies just need someone that can give them a lot of tlc!! Being a foster involves a lot of work, commitment and dedication, but it is extraordinarily rewarding! Some foster experiences will be seeing an abuse or neglected bully friend flourish under your care. Please fill out a foster application and brave bully rescue will make sure to match you with a bully friend that needs your love and care!

 

**Disclaimer**

 

All applicants must be at least 21 years old in order to foster for our rescue. Any adult that will be involved in well-being and responsibility of the care and safety of our foster dog must be included in the application. Incomplete applications will only delay the foster process and can be subject to rejection. Please read carefully and answer all questions. It normally requires 1- 3 days for us to process a foster application and approve, depending on the availability of our volunteers. It also depends on how quickly we are able to contact your references, landlord, etc. Applications that are selected will go through all necessary checks to ensure a proper home for our bullies. If the application is approved, our foster coordinator will contact the applicant(s) to set up a home visit for final approval.

  • All veterinary care will be scheduled by a designated member of Brave Bully Rescue and foster parents will be kept informed of when medical care is required.
  • Foster animal(s) must remain inside the residence of the foster parent at all times except for transportation to and from the veterinary clinic.
  • In cases of medical emergencies, foster parents will contact Monica Febles or Catherine Ramirez for approval prior to bringing foster animal(s) to an emergency care facility or the rescues veterinarian.
