What is the difference between adoption and foster to adopt?

The process is the same as far as phone interviews and home visits being completed in both types of homes.

Adoption is when you have filled out an adoption application on a particular dog that has been in a foster home and assessed. You will work with an adoption coordinator and the foster home before a meet and greet and taking your dog home that day.

Foster to adopt is when we have a dog that is at the vets that is needing a home, but no foster homes are available. We post on the website and facebook page that we are looking for a home that will foster with the intention of adopting once the two week trial period is over. These foster to adopt families fill out a FOSTER application and go through the process along with waivers as foster homes do.
