Foster Program Application and Agreement

Thank you for your interest in Freedom Greyhound Rescue’s foster care program. Freedom Greyhound Rescue (FGR) is a 501c3 non-profit organization which currently operates on a volunteer basis. Our mission statement is to provide excellent animal care, and find suitable, loving homes for unwanted, dismissed, and/or retired racing greyhounds via a well screened adoption program. Please note, all foster dogs are in foster homes for a minimum of six weeks from their arrival to allow them time to adjust to “retirement” without disruption of going from home to home.

Please take the time read carefully and fill out before submitting this Application. After we review your information, our foster coordinator will contact you regarding your availability to foster and the type of greyhound that matches your application.
