Provide a foster home for one of our dogs waiting to be adopted. This requires general care of the dog, working to assess his/her behaviors, providing basic training skills for good dog behavior, and being able to show the dog to prospective adopters.
Knowledge of Goldens and their behavioral needs, securely fenced yard, ability to communicate effectively with GRRAND representatives and prospective adopters, and ability to assess the suitability of a family to adopt the foster dog. Knowledge of GRRAND's policies and procedures is required and the foster family must be vigilant about the safety of the dog.

Foster families are needed on a daily basis as new dogs are rescued by GRRAND; however it is up to each volunteer foster family to determine how often they want to open their home to a new dog. Dogs stay in foster care from a few days to months.
