Is there a particular dog on the Web site that interests you?


By submitting this form, I acknowledge that I am aware of the expenses involved in owning a pet, such as vet, license fees, vaccines, boarding, toys, flea and heartworm control medication, etc., which can be very high. I understand also that it will be important for me to discuss the cost of providing foster care with a North Bay Canine Rescue & Placement coordinator. 

I understand that my foster dog will remain as a North Bay Canine Rescue & Placement dog and can only be placed for adoption by them.  I will give them as much notice as possible to make other foster care arrangements for the dog if for any reason I cannot continue to provide foster care.  All of the information I have given above is true and complete to the best of my knowledge.
