Foster One. Save Two.

A way you can help us save lives is to become a foster parent. Some animals are too young or old to survive a shelter setting and being placed in a home environment under the care of a foster parent increases their chances for finding forever homes. Providing a foster home to a dog going to a rescue organization is another way you can help. These dogs already have “homes,” and by you providing a foster home for a couple weeks, you will help to immediately provide open kennel space for another dog and help the foster animal stay healthy.

If you are considering becoming a foster family, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is your household bustling with activity or fairly quiet?
  • Are there kids in your home (or do they come to visit regularly)–if so, how old are they and are they old enough to be gentle with fragile puppies or be respectful to an adult dog?
  • What about other pets in your home–do they like all other dogs?
  • Do you have cats?
  • What kind of time do you have for walks, play time, training?

If you feel you have the makings of a supportive and nurturing foster home and the ability to provide the structure a foster dog requires, please fill out our Foster Application – we’d love to work with you!
