Because we don’t have a physical shelter where we house our dogs, we rely on the generous support of people like you to foster our adoptable dogs for us until we are able to find a permanent home for them.  As a rescue, we meet the physical needs of the dog – food, leash, collar, kennel, medications, all medical bills, etc. and we ask the foster parents to help meet the emotional needs of the dog.  Many of the dogs in our care have come from some pretty grim circumstances, so patience and persistence is the key.

What do you need to be a foster parent?  Some time to devote to the foster dog, a good nature to get you through the challenges, a loving heart to help these animals who desperately need it, and a fully fenced yard to help keep them safe (exceptions made for dog-friendly apartments or condominiums). Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience and you can feel good knowing that these dogs need you to help them adjust to life as part of a family.
