We are looking for Dog Fosters.
Dog fosters are one of the most integral parts of Hearts & Bones Rescue. As a foster, you are will be opening up you home to a grateful dog, often times given a second chance at life because you were willing to be a foster. If you have always wanted a dog but weren't sure you could commit long term, fostering is a great opportunity to enjoy the unconditional love and company of a dog with only a short-term commitment. Hearts & Bones Rescue will pay for all necessary and approved medical expenses. We'll also provide a baseline level of training / knowledge so that you'll get off on the right foot. We value our foster families greatly and constantly work with them to ensure that the dog is doing well.

Apply now on our website:

Compensation: Volunteer

Time Requirement: Ongoing - the dog will temporarily live in your house. You dictate when you are available for fostering.

Support Staff: Foster Coordinators

About the organization:
Hearts & Bones Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization composed of a network of fosters and volunteers who collaborate to rescue shelter dogs and find them loving, forever homes. Every day, there are thousands of animals killed in America's shelters because they do not have homes. As a foster-based rescue, we focus on providing all of our dogs with secure and caring environments while they wait for their forever families. At Hearts & Bones, all of our dogs are 100% certified pre-loved.
