We appreciate  your interest in becoming a foster for our organization.  You must understand that most of the dogs that come into our rescue come from shelters and humane societies or they were strays, so their complete history is not known.  It is possible that the dogs we take into our rescue have been abandoned, neglected, mistreated, or even abused. Although we evaluate dogs prior to accepting them into our rescue, we cannot guarantee their temperament of any of the the dogs since most of their histories are unknown.  Working with the rescued dogs comes with risks.  By sending the application, you are acknowledging that you understand and accept these risks.

By submitting your application, you are declaring that: you have never been convicted of animal abuse, neglect, or endangerment and that if this changes you will inform the MAGSR Board of Directors immediately or withdraw from the group and that the information provided in this application is true and complete to the best of your knowledge.  MAGSR can and will deny any application if an applicant has falsified any information provided during the approval process.  I understand that if this application is sent incomplete then I will not be considered for approval.

Further, if approved to foster, you understand that you are agreeing to become an official member of MAGSR.  Part of being a foster and member for MAGSR asks that you be added to the group's Forum (email address above will be used) - our primary means of communication.  As a foster and member of MAGSR, you are agreeing to remain part of this Forum group so that you are aware of events where your foster dog would  be invited, aware of concerns, and kept up-to-date on issues related to your foster dog, etc.  If you refuse to be a part of this message board forum, you will not be authorized to foster for MAGSR.  Information on how to join the Forum will be provided to you upon your approval to foster.

Please be patient while the form goes through, it may take a few seconds.
You should see a thank you page once the form has been processed.

You will receive an automatic confirmation of submission immediatedly after the form is submited. You should then hear from us within 48 hours once we receive your application.  If you have not heard from us by then please email us here to inquire about the status of your application.

If you get an error message, please try to submit the form again. If the problem persists, please e-mail us.

Thank You!
