Are You interested in Fostering for The Joshua Fund Dog Rescue?
Our dogs and puppies are rescued from high-kill shelters in the South (including the area of Houston, Texas) and they need foster homes until we arrange for transport to upstate New York.
You'll be helping a dog who has been unwanted or unloved learn how to trust again and become the dog they are meant to be. Sometimes, the transition is quick and the dog will bond with you immediately. Sometimes, it will take a little longer. You need to be willing to show the dog that being a part of a family is a wonderful thing.
Often, the length of stay in a foster home for most of our "already-weaned & on their own" puppies and grown dogs is three weeks. If the dog has tested positive for heart worm disease, their stay could be eight weeks.
