Save a life, foster a DobermanFosters give a dog a safe place to rest and recover. They learn the true personalities of our dogs and help prepare them for adoption. In return, they receive unconditional love from the ones they save and watch them blossom in their forever homes. Apply to Foster
What is Fostering?
The short answer is that fostering a dog is when you give a dog in need a temporary home while we look for it’s forever home. The reality is that it’s so much more than that. Fosters are the core of rescue and we could not save a single dog without them. They take in a dog that has lost it’s family, its hope, it’s everything, and they show it love, kindness and help it heal. A dog in foster learns house manners and how to be a member of the family much better than one in a kennel environment, and we also learn more about what sort of a home the dog needs to be successful. They also experience far less stress than in a kennel environment. The rescue pays for any required vetting, fosters are asked only to pay for food, however in some circumstances, the rescue may be able to supply food as well.
