What does it mean to foster?
We always have a dire need for foster homes. When you foster a rescue dog, you save two lives: the life of your foster that is now able to leave the shelter and the life of the dog who will take its place. There is no feeling quite like knowing that you directly saved a life (or two!). We always have a need for puppy fosters. In general, puppies are only in their foster home for approximately two to four weeks. So, this is a fun easy way to get some great puppy snuggles and kisses while we pay all the expenses. Sanctuary Rescue feels that fostering is a team effort, so we are here to support you throughout your entire fostering journey. If puppies aren't your thing, there are plenty of adult dogs of all sizes and shapes that would love to have a safe, warm foster home. If fostering a homeless dog is something you would love to do, please submit a foster application.
