Foster homes are needed for adults, moms with puppies, and orphaned puppies. Foster homes are also needed for animals that require medical care. All foster animals will need plenty of love and reassurance that humans are not to be feared. By providing orphaned animals with plenty of nutrition, love, and stimulation during their first eight weeks of life, foster homes help ensure their health and survival as adults. We work closely with foster families to make sure the animal they are caring for is a good fit for the level of care they are able to provide.
Foster caregivers play a crucial role in rehabilitating rescued animals. They are in a unique position to help abused or neglected animals learn how to love and trust again. They can help these animals become more "adoptable" by providing socialization and basic training. By teaching or re-teaching an animal how to live in a home setting, caregivers help increase the odds for a smooth and successful transition into a permanent home.

- This will vary on how many dogs you have but probably an hour a day.
- We make every effort to match foster animals with the appropriate foster home. Fosters are always given a choice when a dog becomes available and can decline placement. Please email us with any questions you have.
