Foster With Hello Bully
Shelter life can be very stressful on any animal. Some dogs develop behavior problems in shelters, making them less adoptable. While we make every attempt to keep our dogs happy through behavior modification, enrichment, play, and volunteer interaction, for some dogs it’s just not the same as living in a home. You can help by fostering one of our dogs in a home environment until they can find their forever family.
Our foster homes are invaluable to us and we do our best to make it easy for you! We provide you with everything you need to be a successful foster home: a crate, dog food, bowls, treats, toys, blankets, and anything else you would need! We also provide various foster schedules so that it works best for you. If you can’t commit to full-time fostering, our dogs appreciate any breaks from their kennel they can get! If weekend fostering or part-time fostering works with your schedule, let us know. If you want to help out but maybe you work long hours and only feel comfortable fostering on your days off, we’ll take it!

Hello Bully views our foster families as a respected and valuable part of our team. We agree to always treat you as such. Hello Bully will never discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion or ethnicity. We will do our best to match you with the most appropriate dog. We will never place a dog with you who has any history of human aggression. All dogs must pass a behavior evaluation and have a health check prior to being placed in foster.
Hello Bully does not provide financial reimbursement to our fosters, but we will provide you with everything you should need. Hello Bully will provide food, bowls, toys, treats, crates, blankets, and any other item(s) you feel you need to be a successful foster home. Any item provided to you by Hello Bully must be returned to Hello Bully at the completion of the foster term. You may choose to purchase items in addition to what Hello Bully provides, but this is at your discretion and you will not be reimbursed. Any treats or toys must be approved prior to purchase.
Hello Bully will provide reimbursement for all medical expenses provided that the need for care was not a result of negligence by the foster. All medical treatment including emergencies must be cleared through Hello Bully prior to treatment being administered.
Hello Bully allows fosters to decide what length of foster term fits best with their lifestyle. Our fosters are making a commitment based on their own discretion. Should a situation arise and the contract needs to be broken, Hello Bully requires 30 days notice to find a replacement foster, however, we will take emergencies into consideration.
