Thank you for your interest in fostering a dog for Mainely Mutts Animal Rescue! We ask that you please complete this application as thoroughly as possible, as the information you provide helps us match you with the right pup for your household. Potential fosters need to be 21+ and reside in Maine. 

Foster homes are asked to provide care for the dogs, as well as transportation to and from veterinary appointments as needed, and be available to meet up with prospective adopters – either at your home or a common meeting place, depending on your comfort level. Care for foster dogs includes feeding according to size and needs, exercising according to energy levels, and lots of play time and positive socialization.

Although fostering is a lot of work, it is a very rewarding experience. By fostering, you are saving lives and helping many different types of dogs find the families they’ve been longing for.


As a rescue, we strive to be transparent at all steps of the fostering process. One of our founders would be happy to go into further detail regarding the commitment, timeline, application, or any questions you may have. Please email us here. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for considering fostering with MMAR! 

Next Step: Once you submit your application, a member of our rescue will reach out within 48 hours to confirm your submission and introduce themselves.
