BE A HERO: BECOME A FOSTER

One of the most important and rewarding parts of rescuing dogs is being a foster parent! Without a doubt, our fosters are our biggest asset.  If we don’t have loving foster homes waiting for them, we can’t save homeless dogs from kill shelters.  A foster parent actually saves TWO lives: The dog that can leave the shelter and become their foster dog, and the one that the shelter now has room to keep so it has a chance to be adopted or rescued!  All of the dogs you see on this website are alive today because someone like you stepped forward to foster them!

Are you wondering if fostering a homeless dog is for you?  These articles provide a good explanation of the joys of fostering:
