Foster Heroes

Foster homes are an integral part of our dog rescue mission. We are staying at capacity because of the need in our area, and we need more foster homes to help us serve even more dogs. We can’t emphasize enough why we need foster homes. In addition to giving a dog a temporary home, fostering allows us to free up space in our kennels so that we can take in even more dogs in need. Plus, dogs get kennel-stressed after too long, and a foster home helps them to de-stress and become more adoptable. Please consider helping us out by fostering a dog today!

Pet Fostering Q&A

If you have a sanitary, temperature controlled garage or basement, spare bedroom, or bathroom, you can give shelter to an animal in need of temporary housing!

Some of our pets need just a few days in foster; some of our pets need a bit longer. Typically it will be 2 to 3 months.


All expenses will al be covered by Summit’s Sanctuary! Medical expenses, food, and supplies.


There’s no shame in Foster Failing! However, many of our foster parents find joy in sending their foster pets into new homes. There’s nothing like seeing your foster find their fur-ever home!
