Foster Application Form

Thank you for your interest in fostering a service dog in training! Please complete the following questionnaire to help us get to know you.

Foster orientations are held at our training center in Greenfield, MA, at the beginning and end of each UMASS semester. Once you have completed this application, you will automatically receive notification of upcoming orientations, once the dates are announced! All applicants are required to attend these 3 hour orientations if they would like to be considered for being a full time foster or if they would like to be a relief foster.

In case you are wondering, student can foster regardless of their major! We have many animal science, psychology and public health majors, but also have many fabulous fosters from unrelated fields. Though our program is formally partnered with UMASS Amherst and Smith College, we have/have had wonderful fosters at Hampshire College and Mt. Holyoke College too.

If you are a local non-student applicant, please email us to schedule an interview. We are always looking for local individuals and families to relief foster our pups and dogs in training!

If you have any additional questions, please email

Thank you! We look forward to working with you!
