Rescue Dogs in Need - Foster Opportunities

Save to Favorites



Foster homes needed in the Abingdon/Bel Air/Aberdeen area! We are looking for dog lovers interested in becoming foster parents for rescue pups. Both short-term and long-term foster homes are always needed!

Tall Tails Rescue saves dogs from life threatening situations in Texas and transports them monthly to Maryland to find their forever homes. Sadly, adopters aren’t always able to keep their new pup to no fault of the dog (usually their other dog doesn’t get along with their new dog, or the adopter just wasn’t prepared for a new dog).

When this happens, we call upon our local fosters to care for the returned dog until our rescue returns to Maryland the next month. In the rare event that the pup is in a potentially dangerous or harmful situation, we must move the dog ASAP. This is when our short-term fosters are literally life savers! Our short-term fosters will care for the pup for a few days until a long-term foster is available.

If you are able and willing to be a foster (short-term or long-term), please submit an online application today!

Be sure to provide us with as much information as possible on the particular requirements and preferences of our home (age/gender/breed restrictions).

Thank you in advance for helping save a life!
