Foster a Dog or Puppy Till a FURever Home is Found
We are always in need of foster homes. We have never found the situation where we had too many foster homes and too few dogs or puppies to place in foster care.
In fact, our ability to rescue more pets from shelters is limited first and foremost by the number of foster homes we have in which to place these great pets. If you are able, please consider opening your residence as a foster home to one or more of Real Good Dog Rescue’s great dogs and puppies.
If you foster, you would:
- keep the dog or puppy in your home as an adopted pet
- assist in getting the animal to adoption events
- provide important information on the canine's personality, strengths, and weaknesses
Real Good Dog Rescue maintains financial responsibility for the dog.
The great thing is, you can always choose to adopt your fostered dog rather than placing the pet in another home. We have more than one home who has reported happily failing “Fostering 101“!
If you are interested in adopting your fostered dog, you must complete the same process and pay an adoption fee as other potential adopters.
