Formal training experience is not required, but having some basic training and previous Border Collie experience is a plus. Depending on your experience, we try to provide new fosters with more easily managed dogs at first until they are more comfortable with fostering. Some people welcome a batch of puppies while others prefer dogs over 6 months old. We do our best to accommodate your needs and your situation.
Living with a border collie is wonderful, though not always easy. We will support you throughout your foster experience. We pay for food and all veterinary care required. If you would like to be a foster or learn more about it, please fill out the Volunteer Contact Form and let us know your interests. Someone will be in touch with you to discuss your situation in more detail.
Please Note: We do not do ‘foster to adopt’. There is a 2 week trail period with all adopted dogs where you can return the dog if its not a fit. If adoption is what you are really interested in, please fill out an Adoption Application.
