Our Foster Dogs

The dogs listed below are in our foster program. The foster home provides a transition period between life in the animal shelter and the new, permanent home. The dogs are given the opportunity to learn any needed social skills and to receive the much needed love, shelter, and medical care they deserve.
  
If you would like more information on any of the dogs in our foster program, begin by completing our adoption questionnaire and reading about our Adoption Process. The adoption questionnaire is the first step in our adoption process, whether you are interested in a particular foster dog or are just beginning to explore the option of adopting a rescued GSP.
 
Not sure if you are ready to adopt? Perhaps you are interested in fostering? We need foster homes! We can't save the urgent shelter dogs unless we have a foster home in place. Learn more about becoming a foster home. Foster homes receive priority in adopting their foster dog.

Nala – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Meet pretty Nala! This absolutely adorable 7 month-old GSP girl has a bit of an interesting story – she’s missing one of her back feet.

Hansel – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Hello handsome Hansel! This mellow (yes, we said mellow!) 2 year-old GSP is such a great boy.

His foster home is still waiting for the crazy GSP energy to emerge! Hansel is also a major sweetheart who loves to be loved and give it back, too.

Sarah – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Pretty Sarah! This 1 year-old doll of a dog landed in our lap after she turned up as a stray at the shelter. She is now in a loving foster home where she is proving to be the sweetest little gal (she’s less than 40 lbs!) We think she’s a mix, maybe some Border Collie or even Whippet in there. She’s got a sweet, fun puppy energy. Sarah walks nicely on a leash for the most part, but can be a bit reactive while on leash with other dogs. She loves to have a bit of space to run – […]
