Welcome to the new 4 Paws for Ability Volunteer Hub!  Below is information regarding the foster home experience, including report submission links.  If there is information or a resource you would like to see added to the volunteer hub, please let us know!  If you have questions or issues regarding your foster puppy, please contact your foster home coordinator directly.

Reports

New!:  The puppy raiser report is now to be completed monthly!  This is a monthly review of your foster dog’s experiences, strengths, and health.  This helps the trainers watch your dog progress while they are in your care, and review successes and problems at the end of your fostering experience.  Please submit this report each month for your foster dog.

Monthly Puppy Raiser Report

New!:  The socialization report is a weekly review of your foster dog.  This helps the trainers understand how your foster dog behaves in new and varied public settings.  One socialization report per week is required and you can discuss all outings from the week in that one report.

The following reports are due once, just prior to the return of your foster dog.  Thank you for devoting so much time over the last 3-6 months to your foster dog.  These final reports will greatly assist the trainers in understanding your puppy.
