  • Intro:Name If you have fostered/who you are currently fostering What you have learned from fostering (if you have fostered)? What is your biggest foster fear (if you have not yet fostered)?
  • Quick Point out of the foster HandbookImportant namesVet AddressesBoarding Partner Addresses (see if they are in the book)AC contact informationWays to Market your Foster DogFAQS
  • Types of listings on the foster needed: Dogs in the area and transport dogs (including 2 shot puppies)You have completed the Foster Questioner; your AC has contacted you and hence you are now taking this training. Now you need to decided what type of foster you would like to be;Overnight Foster– only for one night; this happens every Wednesday at night, when the transport group comes back from South Carolina with plenty of beautiful dogs who were on death row.You must be available at night to pick your foster dog and early morning next day – a location to drop your dog off will be given to you on the night you come to pick the dog up.Full-time foster– you will commit to foster your dog until he/she is adopted. You also need to commit to attend at least one adoption event on the weekend. We often offer one on Saturday and one on Sunday. The more events you attend the more chances you are giving your dog to find a forever home.Weekend Foster- we need you to stay with a dog on weekends specially to take the dog to an adoption events
  • Crate your foster whenever you leave the house - even for short trips.- Crate your foster whenever you are not able to observe- Be extra careful when people are entering or leaving your house.- When transporting your foster, tether the leash to a headrest or door-handle or crate them.- Be extra careful when opening and close car doors when the dog is inside.- NEVER leave your foster unattended in a yard even for a few minutes - no matter how well fenced it is.- NEVER let your foster off-leash at a dog park that isn't fully fenced and double gated.- NEVER let children walk a foster dog.Foster Supplies and where you get themSupplied by LDAR:Crate LDAR requires that ALL foster dogs must be Crated - no exceptionswhen you are not home, not able to keep an eye on the dog, when you have company and when you open the door for deliveries etc.dog could destroy your homedog could injure selfdog could injure other family pets or younger family membersthis is NOT your dog, Adopter may want to crate train - and not crating could make this more challengingDog could bolt out the door if frightenedTrue StoryOne of our foster pups was hit by a car New Years 2010. Experienced foster, all friends have dogs, kids are great with dogs, NEVER lost a dog before - during New Years Party their refoster dog bolted out the door. No one even realized dog was gone. (Very experienced foster - so it can happen to anyone)pick up from Mirah’s or transportthese are on loan to you from LDAR, PLEASE return them when you are not fostering.Your responsibility to make sure that you have a crate.
  • Martingale Collar w/ LDAR ID (MUST HAVE)if it’s not legible or the ID tag is missing IMMEDIATELY let us knowyou will need to swing by Mirah’s in GT to pick it upIf the dog does not have a martingale collaryou will need to swing by Mirah’s in GT to pick it up or go buy oneThese collars are designed so that dogs cannot back out of themNEVER loosen the collar once it’s put on
  • Leash will receive one at transport or when you pick up your poochif not available you need to make arrangements to pick one up from Mirah’sNEVER USE RETRACTABLE LEASHES.LDAR does not allow it for foster dogsvery hard to control dogdog can get injured VERY easilyWe have had a LDAR foster break all 4 paws because of retractable leash.personal experience - neighbor’s dog was hit by a car because her dog was spooked and bolted and handle flew right out of her hand.
  • LDAR FOLDERwill receive when you pick up dog at transport or adoption eventif picking up dog from boarding will need to procure from Mirah’sif doing a foster to foster hand off make sure you get from other fosterif dropping the dog off at boarding you will need to ensure that the folder gets to Mirah’s in GT.Always bring your dog’s folder to the adoption event you will attend
  • You Must Provide: Dog Food - First ingredient needs to be a meat (fish, chicken, beef, etc...)Any animal supply store, supermarket or target, Walmart etc. 2 dog bowls 1 food, 1 water don’t want your LDAR foster to share with your personal dogdon’t know about resource guarding;don’t know about germsany dog supply/ Target / Walmart / Garage Sales / yard sale - etc....  OptionalCans of Pumpkin (plain ol’ Pumpkin NOT Pumpkin Pie) Regulates your foster dogDog BedDog Toys (be careful can become a source of fights)Nature’s Miracle or some form of enzyme cleaner (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)Dog Shampoo Treats
  • After you have gone through the application process and turned in your foster docs.....“How do I request a foster?”  ALWAYS through the foster Coordination Team. We ask all fosters not to troll off the LDAR website. Although dogs are listed on the website as needing fosters, a dog will not be added to transport because foster requests it. There are a number of factors which go into the dogs that come up, but to give you a better picture here are a few:How long the dog has been at the shelter - some of the dogs we get are in foster care in SC some are still in the shelter, if you insist on a specific dog that may mean we have to bump someone off who is going to be put down that week if we do not bring them up.The number of dogs we already have in the area that are exactly like the dog you want to foster. If we have too many of the same dog it lowers the chances of each dog getting adopted, which means that the dogs stay in foster care longer which means we are using up a foster for a duration that could have meant 2 or more dogs were brought up. Which ultimately again means more dogs die.We have to make sure that all of the dogs are fully vaccinated and S/N if age appropriate. Needing to get a dog in that was not scheduled means that we have to bump other dogs off, our vols in SC have to rearrange their schedules, etc.Our main focus here at LDAR is to save as many dogs as possible and everything we do and how we do it is based off of this focus.  Foster Needed Email - you will be on the LDAR Foster and the Lucky Dog general ListServsPut out multiple times a week (Kate)2 different groupsDogs in DC and Dogs coming up on transportRespond to your top 3 pics directly to Kate’s email kated@luckydoganimalrescue.orgNEVER reply to the sender on a listserv email (LDAR general or foster)after a short exchange Kate will send the confirmation email.you MUST reply to the confirmation email - if Kate doesn’t hear from you - you are not locked in.this email has ALL NECESSARY PARTIES copied-PLEASE REPLY ALLthis email will introduce you to your foster dog’s adoption coordinator (AC)the weeks events will be listedask you if you need a crate (all Lucky Dogs are REQUIRED to be crated) For Transport Dogs
  • Foster Needed Email - you will be on the LDAR Foster and the Lucky Dog general ListServsPut out multiple times a week (Kate)2 different groupsDogs in DC and Dogs coming up on transportRespond to your top 3 pics directly to Kate’s email kated@luckydoganimalrescue.orgNEVER reply to the sender on a listserv email (LDAR general or foster)after a short exchange Kate will send the confirmation email.you MUST reply to the confirmation email - if Kate doesn’t hear from you - you are not locked in.this email has ALL NECESSARY PARTIES copied-PLEASE REPLY ALLthis email will introduce you to your foster dog’s adoption coordinator (AC)the weeks events will be listedask you if you need a crate (all Lucky Dogs are REQUIRED to be crated)  Priority assignments will go to Full Time Fosters and fosters who can stay for the adoption event.
  • Once you have confirmed the email and a date has been given to you to pick up your dog.
  • You will need to pick up a crate and your new foster dogs folder from Mirah’s in Georgetown 3636 Winfield Ln NW DC 20007 If for some reason the boarding partner does not give you a Martingale collar - LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY you will need to pick one up from Mirah’s as well. PLEASE remember that our boarding partners are exactly that PARTNERS, NOT a part or division of LDAR.  They provide us boarding for either low cost or free. This is HUGE for LDAR’s operations and ability to save the number of dogs we do. They have a privately owned business that they have to run in order to stay in business and we need to respect that. All pick-ups and drop offs MUST be cleared through Kate or Mirah. THEY DO NOT HAVE LDAR CRATES. Your new fosters folder will need to be picked up from Mirah’s.The ONLY reason a foster should contact a boarding partner directly is if they are running late to pick up or drop off.  
  • Foster to foster hand offs- If you are a temp foster or taking over from a temp foster you will receive an email from Kate connecting you to the other foster parent and your AC. It is technically the foster who needs to hand the dog off’s responsibility to get the dog from point A to point B. BUT most fosters work together and figure out a mid point.If you need assistance with the hand off, ask your AC to help. DO NOT send an email to the listserv
  • General LDAR Foster RulesThings to remember:While we do respect that you have dog experience or your own dogs - this dog is your foster dog - NOT your personal pet. The rules are in place to keep the dogs safe and sound until they find their forever home.  
  • 2 SHOT puppies at home with you:He/She MUST be kept in an crate, baby gated into the kitchen or bathroom (an area that can be bleached), or ex-pened, - (the reasoning behind this is to ensure that if your puppies do get sick you only have a small area to clean / bleach down AND if they come down with PARVO please remember that no puppy can be in the area where the infected puppies were for 6 months.)please let us know if you need a crate - we can bring them to transport for you;LDAR does NOT provide ex-pens or baby gatesIf you have a crate, baby gate or ex-pen you are using, please make sure you bleach them according to the foster handbook;It is OK for him/her to interact with your dog, or friends or family members dogs who are fully vetted and healthy;You cannot walk him/her on the street or sidewalks;He/Shecannot go to the dog park or petco/petsmart or any other public places where many dogs have visited whom we are not sure of their vetting, shot records or heath;People cannot pet him/her without purelling first;up to the elbow
  • Talk to me about ADOPTION EVENTS:LDAR has adoption events every weekend. Listed on the website the event coordinator emails all of the fosters every week - MULTIPLE TIMES.RSVP - YES or NO - as early as possible.ACs and the pre-approval list check this and let potential adopters know who will be available at the coming weekend’s events.You are only required to attend 2 a month - BUT we’d love to see your foster dog at as many events as possible.if you are unable to attend and cannot drop-off and pick up your pooch the event coordinator will TRY to get your dog a ridein the end it is your responsibility to get your foster to the events.Your foster dog’s likelihood of being adopted usually correlates to how many events it attends and how many people know that.DO NOT FORGET YOUR FOLDER you will be asked to go back home and get it!Plan to be at the event from 11:45 AM Check-in to 2:15 PM (check out starts at 2:00 PM)IF you need to leave early it MUST be cleared ahead of time by MIRAH - ONLY PERSON WHO CAN OKAdoption events foster check in is at 11:45 AM and please expect to stay until 2:15/2:30.REMEMBER YOUR FOLDER - we will send you home to get it if you do not remember to bring it - there are no bye’s on this. 
  • DO NOT FORGET YOUR FOLDER you will be asked to go back home and get it!Plan to be at the event from 11:45 AM Check-in to 2:15 PM (check out starts at 2:00 PM)IF you need to leave early it MUST be cleared ahead of time by MIRAH - ONLY PERSON WHO CAN OKAdoption events foster check in is at 11:45 AM and please expect to stay until 2:15/2:30.REMEMBER YOUR FOLDER - we will send you home to get it if you do not remember to bring it - there are no bye’s on this. 
  • Please do not bring:Your own dog –Your pup already has a wonderful home, this is the foster pups chance to shine and find their forever home. We want to make sure that potential adopters can focus on the dogs who need homes.Retractable leashes – LDAR DOES NOT ALLOW THE USE OF RETRACTABLE LEASHES ON ANY DOG IN LDAR CARE.High value treats like marrow bones or rawhides – these may cause fights between dogs.   
  • ALL NON - 2 SHOT PUPPIESCheck in at the foster check-in table.Hand in your folder there.The volunteers will put the bandanna on your pup and hand you a bio.Please take the Bio.Remember to keep your dog on a short leash, he/she may not like everyone there - everyone there may not like your pup. Some Lucky Dogs will have red poke-a-dot bandannas. These are the Lucky Dogs who have a variety of challenges they are working on. They will be on the outskirts of the adoption event. Please be cognoscente of the red badanna dogs, and do not approach while handling your foster dog. (Even if not handling a dog - please ask the handler if it’s OK to approach or how to - some “red bandanna dogs” it’s simply an approach issue.)NEVER tell an adopter that your foster is housetrained. The appropriate phrase is “ So & so has never had an accident while at my house, but we cannot guarantee that the change of environment, may cause the dog to have an accident.
  • PUPPY HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS AT EVENT: 2 shot puppies must be in a crate in your car. Once at the event the puppies MUST be carried from your car in their crate to the event. - NO EXCEPTIONS. Puppies go straight from their crate into an ex-pen - THEY NEVER TOUCH THE GROUND.The bio’s of the PUPPY’s are attached to the ex-pen - PLEASE put your puppies in the correct ex-pen.Hand your folders to the puppy area supervisor.The Puppy Area Supervisor is there to supervise the entire area - they have to walk around and go to the desk to drop off folders and such.DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM YOUR PUPPY PEN once the puppies are out of their crate and in their pen.Puppies must go straight from the crate into the expen - NO EXCEPTIONS - EVER The puppies CANNOT TOUCH THE GROUND.if you need assistance getting them out of the crate please ask.NO HOLDING THE PUPPIES: no onemay pick up and hold the puppies, ONLY exceptions are made for pre-approved adopters who are just picking one dog out of the same litter.If they have held a puppy from one litter they CANNOT pick up a puppy from a different litter. People MUST purell up to their elbows and push sleeves up to above their elbows BEFORE petting the puppies.If people have touched their clothes or the ground (mainly little kids) MUST purell again.Adult dogs cannot be near the ex-pens.people wishing to pet the puppies MUST Purell in between ex-pens.Have the Purell bottle in your hands ready to provide visitors right away to disinfect hands!! Ask visitors to roll up sleeves and take off jewelry. If anybody has questions concerning a possible adoption please ask them to fill out a adoption questionnaire and we can find them a AC to screen them on the spot·Adoption events foster check in is at 11:45 AM Please expect to stay until 2:15.
  • What do I do if my foster dog seems ill:ALL VET VISITS MUST BE PRE-APPROVED Email Mirah, Catherine E. and your AC, let them know what is wrong with as much detail as possible. You may be asked to take pictures and send. 
  • If your foster needs to go to the vet, Mirah or Catherine E will set it up for you. The addresses of all of our vet partners are located in your foster handbook. Please be on time. DO NOT take ANY medication from the vet office - if they want to give you a medication call Mirah for authorization. - LDAR usually has the medication that will be prescribed. Expect to go to Mirah’s to pick up the medication needed for your pup. 
  • DO NOT contact our vet-partners yourself. - It’s not our vet partners responsibility to keep track of all of our volunteers to know who is authorized to OK medical treatment - there are over 400 fosters in the LDAR system alone, not including volunteers.  DO NOT approach our vet partners and ask them to give you a discount for your personal pet. DO NOT tell an adopter that our vets will give them a discount. Remember these vets are giving LDAR a great discount - We want to make working with LDAR as easy as possible.To keep giving LDAR the terrific discounts we get for our pups, they have to make money from their regular practice.If we miss appointments or are late - the vet partners we have will stop working with us. 
  • Monthly meds (Heartgard & Frontline)you need to let the AC, Mirah and the event coordinator for that week know they are due,you will need to plan to attend that weeks adoption event with your foster dog.you will pick up their meds at the end of the adoption event during check out if your foster is not adopted.If you cannot attend you will need to make arrangements to attain the medications that week.you will know when they are due because you record this information on your foster dogs MEDICAL TRACKING SHEET - in their folder. 
  • Medication Tracking Sheet-This single sheet is very important:Each Lucky dog has one in it’s folder.Tracks the monthly meds and the meds given while in LDAR care.It’s the only way a new adopter & their vet will know when to administer preventatives and what medications a dog has recently been on.It’s how LDAR is able to keep track of the monthly meds for our pups.Extremely important to keep accurate and up to date. Foster parents also need to keep an eye on when their pups the monthly meds are due and let :the AC, Mirah and the event coordinator for that week know your dog is due so they can add it to the event sheet.If you do not let them know they may not have brought enough medication for your foster.Given first to the dogs who RSVP’d that they needed their meds AND then the others who need, but forgot to notify anyone. You will need to plan to attend that weeks adoption event with your foster dog to pick up their meds at the end of the adoption event if your foster is not adopted.If you cannot attend you will need to make arrangements to attain the medications that week.The monthly meds keep our pooches safe from Lyme disease and heartworm - LDAR has this in stock.there is ABSOLUTELY no reason one of the dogs in our care should come down with Lyme disease or Heartworm.both are painfulLyme cannot be cured only the symptoms can be treatedHeartworm treatment is VERY hard on a dog - ALL treatments for heartworm contain a certain level of arsenic. 
  • What do I do with my foster when I need to travel? #1 most important thing to do ALWAYS is let Kate, Mirah and your AC know.Simply write a single email (copy all) letting them know the dates you need coverage. From there there are 4 options:We find a temp foster while you are out of town;Your foster goes to boarding (if we cannot find a foster home AND there is room for them);Your foster stays at your place with a house sitter/dog sitter orYour foster travels with you.PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THESE ARRANGEMENTS ON YOUR OWN
  • Lost Lucky Dogs - VERY FIRST STEP - cannot emphasize this more - Email Kate, Mirah and the AC ASAPMost people’s first instinct is to get in the car or go out looking for the dog, PLEASE contact Kate, Mirah and your AC first.By doing this LDAR gets “on the horn” to listservs, other rescues, vets and shelters /animal control in the area where the dog was lost.Many times we have already been contacted by someone who has found the dog.We get more volunteers from LDAR out to help you and the AC flyer the area.LDAR gets a Find Toto alert out. Literally all of this starts happening the minute you call/email in.By looking yourself first - we lose valuable time.
