As a foster based rescue, our dogs and cats looking for homes reside with families rather than in a shelter or kennel. Fosters are the backbone of any rescue organization, they open their homes, provide love, care and attention to animals in need.

In addition to providing temporary home for the dog and providing food and care, fostering for us involves making the pet available for a meet and greet for potential adopters with approved applications, bringing them to adoption events and for vet appointments (our vet is located in Windham) when needed for wellness care or spaying/neutering, etc, or coordinating with us to have a volunteer pick them up when needed. If the pup is not adopted at an adoption event, the pup is returned to the foster home.
