senior foster program
about the program
Sunshine Big Dog Rescue is implementing a new program to match seniors age 65 and older who love dogs but may not have the resources to financially care for a dog.
The Senior Foster Program is a unique opportunity for seniors who yearn for companionship and a sense of purpose that comes from caring for a pet to foster dogs without any fees and providing all necessary supplies to ensure a smooth and fulfilling experience.
A foster application can be submitted in the link below. We will then complete a screening process, which includes a home visit and visit history of the applicant’s veterinarian (if you've owned pets in the past) to make sure they’re a good fit for the program. We then will match the senior with a dog based on individual needs.
There is no fee for the program. Our rescue covers all of the dog’s medical care costs.
