KONG wobblerHere is a whole list of items you'll need to set your dog up for success!

  • A crate (ask the dog's foster what size)
  • Quality food (see our list of acceptable foods here)
  • Metal or ceramic bowls for food and water (no plastic)
    • We highly recommend feeding your dog in a food dispensing toy!
  • A bed or crate mat
    • For puppies, no bedding in their crateuntil they are older and 100% housetrained is recommeded. 
    • Some dog may chew or tear up a bed or crate mat so ask the foster caregiver if the dog had or did not have a bed in their crate.
  • Treats and chews
    • Give treats sparingly and always ask them to do something to earn it!
    • For adult dog, we do not recommend "rawhides" or "pigs ears" as these may become a choking hazzard, or in the case of the pigs ears, add calories.
    • We do recommend "bully sticks" and antlers, and other safe, hardy chews
  • Safe toys like a KONG, rope toys, tennis balls 
    • Note that some dogs will tear up stuffed toys so you might try one of the "stuffless" toys.  Tearing up these toys could also be a choking/swallowing hazzard.
