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.
Not able to foster but want to help one of our wonderful foster dogs? Check out how you can become a Guardian Angel! See all the options for helping (some free!) under our Donate tab.
Gunner is one bouncy boy! At a very playful 5 years-old, this boy has got spunk to spare. Now that temperatures have risen, his favorite thing to do is take a little dip in the kiddie pool at his foster home. He knows how to keep himself cool! He loves playing with other dogs and would be very happy to share his forever home with a canine friend. Did we mention he’s already housetrained and knows several commands like sit, down, and shake? For a summertime companion, it would be hard to find a better dog than Gunner!
What a handsome boy! Rally is a very sweet 5 year-old who would just love to find his perfect match.

Like a true GSP, he’s happiest when he’s getting lots of exercise, both mental and physical. Rally does well with other dogs and is happy to have their companionship, but hanging out with his humans is still number one in his book. If you’ve got lots of love to [...]
Someone forgot to tell Cooper he only has 3 legs! When we rescued this handsome 2.5 year-old, he had a shattered back leg and dislocated hip. Due to the degree of injury, his leg had to be amputated, but it didn’t faze him for a minute! Not even three days after the surgery, he was running around like a pro. He is a very good-natured sweet boy who quickly charms everyone he meets – the vet staff were tempted to hide him from us when we arrived to transport him to his foster home so they could keep him! Cooper [...]
