The only way that we can save dogs is with the help of foster homes. Being a foster family has rewards beyond the essential value of helping a dog in need find a new home. For some, it is a chance to have a dog without making a lifetime commitment, or trying new companions for an existing dog. Foster Care is critical to our rescue efforts, the more homes we have, the more dogs we can save. Becoming a foster family is a very rewarding experience, and can be a lot of fun. There are often tears shed when a foster finally finds a home of their own, but knowing you have saved a life and opened up space to save another is truly rewarding.
