If you find yourself in difficult straits and wondering how to keep your beloved pet(s) safe and cared for without losing them altogether, please contact us ASAP to see if we can help. We consider a major life crisis to be an imminent and unavoidable situation – such as a notice of eviction, a medical diagnosis that could leave you bed-bound for a time, or a messy relational breakup – something so potentially disruptive in nature that it would temporarily jeopardize the future security or well-being of your beloved dog or cat.

 

Please understand that, because we are all-volunteer-based and foster-driven, we are not equipped to handle immediate, emergency situations. We encourage you to provide us with as much lead time as possible. We will do everything in our power to respond to your initial inquiry or request for help within 48 hours.

Important Note: If you are helping to complete this application on behalf of another person, be sure to input that person's name and information in the initial contact fields. You will have an opportunity to add your name and contact information later on in the application. When completing the application, please provide as much information as possible. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

How Our Process Works

1

APPLY FOR HELP

 

Complete our Request Help e-form. The more information you can provide us, the better. Our application will ask about such things as your pet’s vetting history; its temperament; energy level; house training; and friendliness toward strangers, children, or other pets. We realize this is a lot of information but, for the safety of our volunteers, we can only accept pets that we feel will do well in a foster environment.

2

FIND A FOSTER

 

Once we commit to helping you and your pet, the next step is for us to try to find a suitable foster home. This may take us days or even weeks, so the more lead time you can give us, the better. We cannot guarantee that we will be successful in finding a foster match within your required time frame, so we highly encourage you to continue searching for other potential alternatives (friends, family, neighbors, or other resources).

3

ARRANGE TRANSPORT

 

If we are able to find a foster match, we will then arrange for one of our volunteer transporters to pick up your pet and deliver it to its temporary foster home.

4

COMPLETE TEMPERAMENT AND COMPATIBILITY TESTS

When we pick up your pet, our transporter will conduct a basic temperament test. If your pet fails this test, we will be unable to accept the pet into our program. Additionally, when the pet is dropped off, if the foster expresses any compatibility concerns, the transporter may be instructed to return the pet to its original pickup location.

5

TAKE CARE OF VETTING

 

Stay Together Furever will cover the costs of any vet services your pet may require while it is in our care, including vaccines, spaying or neutering, heartworm/flea prevention, or other medical needs.

If we are unable to help your pet, there may still be other alternatives, so don’t give up hope. For a list of other available resources, click here.
