FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How long does fostering last?
The average foster dog is adopted to a wonderful, forever family in less than three weeks. Of course, there are exceptions to any rule.
Can I pick my foster dog?
Some of the dogs listed on the Pee Wee's Pals website are already in foster care. New foster families are carefully matched to a foster dog based on criteria provided by the family during the screening process. However, if there is a particular dog or cat that you would like to foster...we will do our best to accomodate.
What happens if there is a problem with my foster dog?
Pee Wee's Pals has both veterinarians and behavioral trainers to help foster families work through any problems with their foster dogs. If the situation is just not working out, foster dogs can be moved quickly to another foster home or temporary boarding facility.
Can I adopt my foster dog?
Foster families sometimes find it too difficult to let their foster dog go to a new home. While Pee Wee's Pals would prefer you adopt out the dog and save another life by fostering again, we understand that this is not always possible. In these cases, it is permissible to adopt your foster dog. However, Pee Wee's Pals asks you decide within the first three days of fostering if you will adopt.
Where do all the dogs come from?
Pee Wee's Pals works with local shelters. Many dogs are picked up as strays off the street, turned in by owners and rescued from euthanization. Failure to spay/neuter leads to an endless cycle of unwanted dogs and pups.
