What foster homes do?

All dogs which we rescue are immediately housed into a foster home. We have foster homes which primarily foster adult dogs and those who primarily foster puppies. Our fosters are located both, in the South, and in the Northeast.

A common misunderstanding is that all rescued dogs must be placed in a foster home in the Northeast. All of our dogs, once taken from a shelter, are housed in a foster home from the state in which they were rescued, for no less than one month. Moving a dog into another home with different rules, different humans, different dogs can be distressing and is disrupting to a dog.
