All of our Shelties are housed in "foster homes". Our
foster homes are the key to our success, as the foster home plays such a key
role in the placement process. Foster Home Training is mandatory, and
must be completed at our main office in Bloomington, Illinois.
(online training is in the works, but not ready at this time)
You must live within an easy drive to Bloomington, IL. All
our meet-and-greets are in Bloomington.
As a foster home, you are asked to house and care for 1 or
2 Shelties that we will match with your home. You would not get
a dog that was not a good match for you or your home. You can
trade dogs at any time, if you are not happy with your foster dog.
All dogs are fully vetted before going into a foster home.
Some dogs may be on medication while you have them. You must be
able to give medication to the dog when needed.
You provide: the home, high quality food, and lots of love
We provide anything the dog needs...medications, special
food (if the dog cannot eat what you feed your dogs) crate,
leash, collar, bowls and any other item the
dog will need.
You must have a fully fenced secure yard,
accessible from your back door.
Dogs stay in foster care until they are adopted.
Time frame can vary depending on the
dog, their medical needs, and their age.
As a member of our team, there are lots of other perks that come
with the job.
- Meet lots of Sheltie lovers.
- Free vaccinations for your own dogs.
- Lots of valuable training and experience.
- Knowing you are helping a homeless Sheltie
- Foster at your own pace. Take a break when you need to.
