Want to know more about fostering?

In order to keep rescuing dogs, we need foster homes to provide a safe and loving environment until a forever home is found for our pups. Since we do not have a shelter, the number of dogs we have at any given time is a direct reflection of how many foster families are available.

 

Why we do not shelter our dogs:

We prefer to keep our dogs in temporary foster homes and not behind bars. This gives them the love and attention they deserve as well as give them the care they may need physically and/or emotionally. We love our pups and want them to be as happy as possible before their destined owner finds them.

 

Become a foster parent:

We greatly appreciate anyone interested in fostering dogs! We will work carefully with you to ensure any dog you foster is a great fit for your home and that all your needs are met.

What responsibilities do I have as a foster parent?

If you choose to foster, you're providing a safe space for your foster dog to decompress while waiting for the right home. You must be committed to keep the dog until it is adopted, this could be 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months...you never really know. We do all the marketing, you just need to keep the dog safe and provide us with lots of pictures! Because we are volunteer driven, as a foster you must be willing to set up meet and greets for your foster dog to find their perfect family!

 

Falling in love:

We understand that sometimes foster families fall in love with their foster pups. Since the dog is already comfortable with you and as long as everything else is a good fit, you will have first choice at adopting the dog. Our main goal is to find the dog a loving home and we are more than happy with that being you!

We always need fosters! We cannot guarantee that there will be a dog available that matches your needs, but we keep all applications on file!
