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.
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.

Thelma and Louise – Our Foster Dogs

Thelma & Louise will steal your heart and are double the love!  They are sisters with a special bond.  Louise is the fearless one; but she is also the blind one.  She will happily charge across the yard in pursuit of the critter she has sniffed out but otherwise she sticks right to Thelma’s heels.  Thelma is the caretaker, always there to help her sister navigate back in the dog door and around all the household furniture.

Dasher – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Oh Dasher, how did we name you? Let us count the ways….. We thought your name was apt because you were found en-flight at the time Santa was making his rounds with Dancer and Prancer and the others. But laying eyes upon you, we realize it is your dashing good looks that provided the name. However you have shown us that, like every young, vibrant GSP, you are always on the ready to dash away, dash away, when your human is not keeping a close eye on you. Luckily you are so jolly and playful that humans and canine friends fall […]
