Foster

Husky House works with foster parents/homes. There are thousands of homeless huskies and mixes sitting in shelters on death row right now. We need foster homes to save them. Please consider becoming a foster home now and save a life.

We need fosters for a wide range of our orphans. Everything from Siberian Huskies to Mixes, from Adults and puppies to special needs and behavioral problem dogs. We particularly in need of fosters that are open to taking on whole families as well as pregnant mommies and foster them at least until the pups are 8 weeks old.

All Husky House foster dogs can attend day camp and board for free. All other pets in the family will recieve a discount.

Foster families are required to bring their fosters to Husky House adoption events & scheduled meet and greets.

If you want to make a difference and help us rescue more dogs please consider opening your home to a foster and fill out a fostering application below.

Please fill out the following if you are applying to foster a Siberian Husky or a Husky Mix:

Have you previously owned and/or lived with a Siberian Husky?

Are you aware of the following traits of the Siberian Husky breed?

  • they are escape artists (thru open doors, over and under fences, thru windows)
  • they should NEVER be allowed to run loose in unfenced areas because they are EXTREMELY UNRELIABLE OFF LEASH
  • the overwhelming majority of Siberian Huskies coming into shelters and rescue groups are strays
  • blow/shed their coats heavily twice a year
  • have a very high energy lever and need a lot of exercise
  • are very intelligent, can be stubborn and are not terribly obedient
  • can have a high prey drive with small animals (e.g. cats, birds, squirrels, hamsters, etc.)

Given the Siberian Husky's personality for escaping and roaming, will you teach all household members to:

  • make sure the dog is ALWAYS wearing indentification tags on his/her collar
  • never take the dog out without a lead/leash
  • make sure all gates and doors are securely closed

What is the name of your local shelter(s)?

Do you agree to the following:

  • Foster parents agrees to surrender custody of foster dog(s) to Husky House upon demand
  • Foster parents agree they have no legal ownership of the foster dog in their care
  • The foster parent will have first opportunity to adopt the foster dog in their care. The adoption fee and contract must be delivered to Husky house within 24 hours should you choose to adopt your foster
  • Vet care will only be provided by contacting Husky House and approval of Husky House and using one of our participating vets. If foster parents use a Husky House participating vet WITHOUT Husky House approval foster parent incurs expense
  • Husky House will NOT PAY for any vet care by your personal vet, in the event of emergency you must contact Husky House and go to Garden State Vet or Animal Speciality Center only. (Both open 24hrs)
  • Husky House is in no way responsible for any damage a foster dog could do in your home, we recommend crating your foster dog when unsupervised
