Help a rescued Sheltie begin a new life. Become a foster home.
Houston Sheltie Sanctuary
Houston Sheltie Sanctuary is always in need of additional foster homes. Being a foster home means sharing your home with a rescued dog, providing food, shelter, toys, walks, and lots of attention, until a permanent home for the dog is approved. We count on our foster homes to evaluate temperament and observe behaviors in a variety of situations, and we welcome those updates so we can assess the dog and enhance the description on the website. Most foster care situations require 2 weeks to a month of residential foster care, and in some cases where the dog is ill or older, several months. Our foster homes experience great joy and deep satisfaction when they see that through their efforts a neglected dog gets a second chance at life and a new opportunity to share his or her unconditional love with people who care.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
