Do you have a special spot in your heart for large-breed dogs who need a little extra love and attention? Are you a "Unicorn" in the foster world (meaning your home is free of children, cats, and dogs)?! Would you jump at the chance to help dogs in need while they search for their forever home?! If this sounds like you, we have just the role for you!
Objective: Provide long-term foster care and implement behavior modification methods for large breed dogs.
Provide [potentially] long-term foster care for a large-breed dog
Implement behavior correction methods as needed and as instructed by HEA Foster Team and the Sanctuary care team
Evaluate your foster dog’s personality and provide recommendations for ideal home environment
Transport foster dogs to:
The Adoption Center and/or Sanctuary for scheduled meet & greet and/or adoption appointments
Vet appointments, if/when applicable
Act as part of the "marketing" team to help get your foster adopted. This may include:
Participating in meet & greets with the animal (helping to introduce them to potential adopters)
Taking photos that showcase the animal and meet HEA’s brand standards
Communicate regularly with the Foster Coordination Team to:
Report any progress or concerns as it relates to the animal’s behavior/health
Provide photos and updates for the animal’s biography
On occasion, administer medications and/or provide care for minor illness
Present a professional appearance as a representative of HEA when meeting potential adopters for appointments
An ideal living situation that includes:
Space and capacity for a larger dog
No children, cats, or dogs in the home, please!
Willingness and ability to be trained on dog behavior and behavior correction methods
Ability and willingness to commit to long-term fostering
Reports to: HEA Foster Team
Commitment: Fosters are a vital piece of these animals’ journeys, and these types of dogs may require months-long foster stays before they find their forever home. Our ideal fosters would be willing to commit to fostering an animal until he or she gets adopted (unless extenuating circumstances arise).

To create a world where the life of every companion animal matters...Every.Single.One.
The mission follows the vision - To provide a loving home to every companion animal that enters our care. Lifetime guaranteed.
The pillars of our work are simple:
In our brief 12 year history, HEA has found forever homes for nearly 4,000 dogs and cats, spayed/neutered thousands more, and provided rehabilitation and sanctuary care to hundreds of others that would have become statistics had they not found the love and compassion of HEA's staff and volunteers.
