Foster a Pet

Steps to Foster an Animal from Athens-Clarke County’s Adoption Center

  1. Fill out our foster application (link below)
    • The Georgia Department of Agriculture also requires a home check, so all interested fosters must submit a video of their home as well. This should be a short tour that shows where the foster pet will be housed. Please start outside with the house or apartment number shown.
  2. Once we receive the foster application and home video, we will set up an appointment for foster pick up.
    • All fosters must be pre-scheduled. 
    • Anyone with resident dogs or children will need to bring them to the appointment so we can have a meet and greet and make sure it’s a good match for everyone. 
    • Provide an idea what the home is like (low/high energy, active/calm) and what you want to do with the dog (hike/run/short walks, Netflix and chill, out and about). All of this info helps us find a good match.
