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.

Oliver – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Oliver is just over 10 years old and acts just like a young dog!  He’s settled into his foster home really well and gets along with their other dog and their cat (most of the time). He does like to give chase when cats run, so any cat in his forever home would need to be dog savvy.   Oliver likes to meet people and is doing well with the humans in his home. He was a little anxious to be left alone when he first arrived in his foster home, but has made progress as he settled into a routine. […]

Willa – Our Foster Dog

Meet Willa! This sweet girl is about four years old and is looking for her forever home. She loves to follow her human companion all around the house and snuggle anytime they sit down. She’s playful, energetic, and athletic so she would make a great running buddy! Willa is very gentle around children, but does not do well with other dogs in her home. She is still getting used to car rides, so Willa would do best with a family that stays home most weekends and can take her on local adventures, and that will work with her on training […]
