Become a Foster
Our mission at Starfleet Service Dogs, Inc. (SSDI) is to professionally task-train, match, and sustain service dogs to mitigate an individual’s mental or physical disability. SSDI envisions an integrated community of humans and animals helping each other to live fulfilled lives. The first step in the process to training rescue dogs to become service dogs is showing them the love and compassion they deserve. We do not own a facility that houses dogs; therefore, we rely on community support so that our dogs are never placed into a kennel situation. One of SSDI’s core principles is teamwork as it takes a large group of caring individuals to train and maintain these dogs. Working together and continued training are what keep our dogs going strong.
We do not rescue any dog before we can ensure a proper foster home and resources needed to provide welfare for the entirety of their lives. Our number one concern in all situations is the physical and mental welfare of our dogs.
If you feel you could provide a foster home to one of our dogs, please fill out our Foster Application which can be downloaded below. When you have completed your application, please send it to with the subject line reading: ATTN: FOSTER DIRECTOR
