Our foster homes are a critical component of our program. Each year, thousands of dogs find themselves homeless, often thru no fault of their own, in pounds or as strays across the country. We depend of the kindness of dog loving families to take these dogs in as their own for short periods of time, usually only a couple of weeks, until we can prepare them for permanent adoption.
It is incredibly rewarding to watch your foster blossom from a bewildered pup unsure of a new situation into a loving companion. For some, it is the first time they have experienced love and a home. To know that this sweet pup before you, without your intervention, might be starving on the streets, euthanized due to overcrowding or dying alone somewhere but it didn’t because you cared. Now it will have a second chance.
As a foster home, you will be giving these deserving dogs an important transition on their way to find a permanent family. We provide everything you will need-a crate, food, vet care and lots of support. We have some expertise and can help work out which dog will be the right foster for you. We will be right here beside you and I promise you will love it and feel good about the important contribution you are making.
If you have ever considered becoming a foster, now it is as important as ever. Besides literally saving lives, fostering is a wonderful way to feel good and to teach giving back and sense of community service to kids (can qualify as community service in many cases but parents must be supervising). If you have been thinking about adoption, fostering can be a great way to decide if timing is right, which kind of dog is right. In some cases, families may even find their next dog by fostering it first.
