“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.” attributed to Karen Davison

What you need to be a Foster:

  • A home
  • Time to spend
  • Patience
  • A big heart

What to Expect:

Many of our rescued Chessies are stressed from being in a shelter or having their world turned upside-down. As a foster home, you will watch these stressed and fearful animals relax and become happy again.

Some of our dogs need training and extra care while in foster homes. We often perform needed surgeries so foster parents provide post-operative care. Sometimes foster parents will nurse neglected dogs back to health. On the other end of the spectrum, some dogs are happy to be out of their current situation from day one. You will see the joy in their faces as they enter your home and realize that their ordeal is over and they are starting a new adventure!

We will work together with you, respect you wishes and try to only give you a dog that you can handle.

Apply to foster today– we look forward to having you as a valuable member of our volunteer team!
