Become A Foster!

A Foster Program as Unique as The Love Pit!

You Will Make a Difference

Do you love pit bulls, rehabilitation, and want to participate in free dog training? Then you have what it takes to foster. Apply to foster with The Love Pit and join the best foster program in all of North Texas. Your efforts will be rewarded with love and affections from the community’s most precious pit bulls.

Our team of TLP coordinators will prepare you for fostering and set you up for success every step of the way. Fosters are expected to adhere to guidelines, policies, and procedures in the best interest of the dogs in our program. TLP provides ongoing training for all fosters and customized training strategies specific to each dog. It is our goal to maintain a culture of continuous learning for our fosters that benefits our dogs, volunteers, the rescue, and our mission.


STEP 1: Foster Application

Fill out the foster application and our team will contact you within 24 hours. You will need to make time for training and exercising your foster dog, and commit to fostering each foster dog until adoption.

STEP 2: Foster Orientation

Watch our foster orientation video, review our foster manual, and review TLP’s policies with a foster team member via telephone.

STEP 3: Rescue & Training

Our foster coordinators will work with you one-on-one to match you with the best dog for your home and lifestyle. Training will take place weekly, biweekly or monthly depending on the needs of your foster dog. Please remember, we take training very seriously and all fosters are required to commit to training their foster dog. Our training program can last up to 12 weeks, covering basic commands, house manners, and socialization. Training is free for all fosters. You may be asked to attend a group class in Dallas, Euless, or far North Dallas.

STEP 4: Prepare for Adoption

Get your dog cleared by our medical and training team to be ready for adoption.

STEP 5: Your Foster is Adopted! Rescue Another!

Thank you for helping a dog in need! Are you ready for another one? The Foster team always has another dog waiting to spend time with you until their furever home is found!
