Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course). By taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you’re:
There are many reasons PINC needs you as a foster home. Some of our most common reasons include:
Complete the PINC foster application and if approved we'll work with you to figure out the right foster dog for your household. If you are interested in fostering a particular dog already in our program please let us know on your application.
Please consider opening your home to a dog in need and foster with PINC.
What does the foster home provide? As a Pawsitive Impact NC foster home, you provide the comfy place to sleep and all the love you can spare. PINC covers all of your foster pet’s veterinary expenses, medications, and provides any special equipment or supplies. We only ask that you provide food and puppy pads (if necessary).
We ask the foster family to treat the foster pet like any other member of the family. Get to know their personality. Any insight you can offer is helpful to PINC's placement decision. Together, you and the animal’s rescue representative decide what kind of home will be best for your foster pet.
These volunteers care for PINC dogs in their own homes. They are often called upon to have dogs vetted, do some training and socializing of the dogs, and speak to potential adopters. They work hand in hand with the adoption reps, as they are the ones who get to know the dogs the best. Their evaluation of a dog's personality and temperament helps the rep place the dog in the most appropriate home
You may ask, what if I want to adopt my foster dog? At PINC we understand that “foster failures” occur. If you and your foster’s representative decide the foster is a good match for your family, you are eligible to adopt the pet. The standard adoption procedure is followed, including adoption contract and donation. We hope you’ll continue to foster!
Let us know what kind of pet you can foster and for how long and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. Our fosters are one of our most valued resources and we appreciate you very much. Your compassion saves lives!

When you foster, you agree to take a homeless dog into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the dog is adopted.
