Foster

Thinking of becoming a foster?

Blue Dog is in need of both short and long-term fosters. Because every Blue Dog lives in a home with their foster family, we are always searching for more volunteers to open their hearts and homes so that more dogs in need can find a safe haven to prepare for their forever homes.

What to Consider

Fostering has both its rewards and difficulties. It is a commitment of time and energy, of sharing your space with another family member, of helping a medically or emotionally damaged pup heal, and finally, being able to say goodbye when the perfect match is made.

Our Responsibility

Blue Dog Rescue provides their foster people with the essentials to care for their foster dogs – food, veterinary care, medications, crates, treats and toys, and continued support through our Blue Dog community.

Your Responsibility

Fosters must provide a safe nurturing home environment; transportation as needed for vet visits, training, meet-the-dog days and events; and quality time with their pup that includes walks, house training, and socialization into the community.

The Rewards

So many. Watching that scared, unwanted pup develop into a beautiful, beloved member of a loving family, and then, shedding a few “happy tears” as you let him go and start looking for the next misfit who will walk into your life is at the top of the list.
