PACK Academy: Step 3
Most of PACK Taiwan's dogs have never lived in a home. We believe it's important for them to experience life with humans as part of their PACK Academy education. Think of it as a final project or an internship.
We need 2 types of fosters:
For behavior observation
These foster homes will help us observe and evaluate a dog's behavior in a home environment and provide feedback on a weekly basis. The length of foster will be 2-4 weeks.
Waiting for adoption
Dogs who are ready for adoption will live in foster homes while PACK spreads the word about our newest PACK Academy graduate! The length of foster will depend on how soon we can find our dog a forever home.
Foster Application Process
Here are the steps to becoming a foster family for PACK Academy dogs-in-training:
Complete a Foster Care Application Form
Attend a PACK Taiwan Foster Workshop (a PACK team member will contact you) to learn about PACK Academy and basics of dog management
Wait for a PACK Taiwan rehoming specialist to contact you for an interview and virtual tour of your home
If there is a good fit, we will contact you to schedule a time to introduce our dog to your home
Complete a Behavior Feedback Form every week
Wait for foster rotation (we want dogs to experience different home environments) or for dog to be adopted
While a our dog is living with you, PACK Taiwan can provide or cover the following:
- Dog food ( About two weeks.)
- De-worming and flea/tick medicine
- Medical treatment, if necessary
- Leash and dog tag
Notice：Our foster program is volunteer-based. PACK Taiwan does not pay foster homes.
