A foster home is a temporary home for one of our Rotties until SSRR finds a permanent home for the dog. A foster home provides the love and shelter for the dog while SSRR pays for ALL medical expenses, including Heartworm preventative. Fosters provide the home, love and food (SSRR will provide food if needed). Being a foster home is not easy. Taking a Rottie into your home, caring for him, loving him, and then letting him go to a new forever home can be very difficult. But, fostering can also be the most rewarding and fulfilling thing a true dog lover can ever do to support dogs in need.


Fostering a dog is a commitment to a LIFE!. It should not be taken lightly as we do not take it lightly. Fostering is also a commitment of time that you will spend with the dog you foster, making him/her part of your family. If you do not have the time to spend with a new dog or cannot make the commitment then please do not submit a foster application.

We require a Vet reference and 3 personal references. You're dogs (and cats) must be UTD with shots, must be spayed or neutered (unless there is a valid reason they can't be). A fenced in yard is preferred but will be decided on a case-by-case basis. A home visit is required. Once approved, we will send you dog-to-dog intro information, foster procedures manual and other info you need to successfully foster a Rottweiler. You will be assigned a foster coordinator who will be available to help you through any issues along the way and will give you guidance on our policies and procedures.

Homes without fences are rarely approved and are considered on a case-by-case basis.  Almost all of our available dogs require a home with a fenced yard for several reasons.  Most of SSRR dogs come to us from shelters picked up as strays, with unknown history.  We do not know how they became strays in the first place.  Did they run away from their former owners?  Did they chase an animal into the woods and never found their way home?  There is no way of ever knowing so a fenced yard is required for their safety.

SSRR does not accept underground fencing as the primary source of confinement for a Rottweiler. Studies have shown that despite training, very strong-willed dogs, such as Rottweilers, will cross that electric barrier if their prey drive or desire to chase is strong. Further, underground fences do not keep out other animals (or people) who want to enter the yard, and therefore can allow your dog to be subjected to diseases or injuries, or to cause injury (or death) to another person or animal. This could be a source of liability for the owner, and/or result in being forced to give up your dog, or have it euthanized.

Please reply to all questions. If a question does not apply to you then please put N/A in that space. We will not process incomplete applications.

SSRR Provides FREE transport to approved fosters.
