We need volunteers who can provide a temporary home to a dog in need. Dogs need fosters for a variety of reasons. You may be asked to foster a dog who:
- Needs extra care to recover from an illness or injury
- Is frightened by living in the shelter and need a quiet place to live until they're adopted - or -
- Needs some training to improve their chances of adoption
Adult only, pet free homes are highly desirable! (We also need foster homes where there's already a good natured dog in the home to help some of our shyer dogs.)
Fostering makes a huge difference in the life of a dog, helping to improve their health and well-being, show at their best, and give them the very best chance of finding a happy home.
Baypath Humane covers the cost of any medical care through our vet, and can provide leashes, bedding, a crate, and more.
Fostering experience isn't required, although dog experience is ideal.
Experience with positive training and/or having a fenced yard are a huge bonus!
