Fostering will be one of the most rewarding things you will ever do.
You can watch a shy, timid dog blossom into a confident and loving companion. You can help rehabilitate a basset hound with an injury or illness so he can make it into a forever home healthy and happy. You can help give a lonely senior hound a secure future.
Fostering takes dedication and patience. Rescued dogs may have been abused or neglected, and need special care and attention before their true personalities emerge. We do not always know their temperaments because we usually know very little about their histories. Foster homes must undergo the same application process as potential adopters, including a visit from a Belly Rubs volunteer and providing references.
