I’ve applied to be a foster but haven’t heard back. Was I rejected?

We contact every foster and every adoption applicant, regardless of whether or not you are approved.

Please allow our staff 2 business days to get in touch with you – noting that they are at fairs on the weekend and may not review applications until Monday.

If you still haven’t heard from us please check your spam folder and your voice mail! We have a busy schedule and if we can’t reach you we will leave a message or try another way.

If it’s been more than 2 business days (not counting the weekend!) and you don’t have an email or voicemail you can follow up by emailing foster@dogswithoutborders.org

We try our best to be as prompt as we can be but sometimes emergencies throw the schedule.
