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. Please note: The information we give on each dog is based on observations while the dog is in our program. The dog may display different behaviors in your home after adoption due to a number of factors, including different environmental stimuli, disruption of routine, and so on.

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.

Archer – Our Foster Dog

Meet Archer! Archer is a sweet GSP mix who loves to chase squirrels, help out with chores, and just hang out with his people.   He does have a tendency to roam, which is why he ended up stuck at the shelter.  There, it was discovered that he wasn’t able to see out of his right eye & that he was in some pain.  So, that eye was removed, but that hasn’t slowed him down at all!  He has no right eye, but it’s hardly noticeable when you look at his cute, smiling face.  If you’re looking for a buddy to […]

Pinto – Our Foster Dog

Welcome to Pinto! This adorable 14 year-old gentleman is spry as can be for his age. He loves a nice long walk with his people (as long as there aren’t too many hills).

Pinto is mostly blind, but not too blind to see the outdoor cats at his foster home!
