Foster homes are the backbone of our organization! Without dedicated foster families opening up their homes to these dogs, there would be no MABBR.
Fostering a dog is one of most important gifts you can give to a rescue dog. Most of the dogs in our program have waited their whole lives to be in a loving home. Not only does fostering give them the gift of life, but it is more than likely the first time they’ve been treated with such kindness and compassion. Many rescue dogs have never even been in a home before. Even though fostering is a very rewarding, fun, and special experience, it is important to know that it is not all fun and games! Fostering is hard work. Most of the dogs need help learning manners, house breaking, crate training, walking on a leash and more. These dogs have been failed by humans their whole lives, and it’s up to us to help them become adoptable pets. Experienced MABBR volunteers will work with our foster homes every step of the way to help ensure their experience and that of the dogs is a success.
If you are interested in becoming a foster parent for a MABBR dog, we ask that you fill out the adoption application. In the field that asks for adoptive dog’s name, instead please put “Foster” and your application will be forwarded to us.
Our foster homes go through the same screening process as our adoptive homes to ensure they have the proper set up, breed knowledge and understanding to properly care for the dog until a forever home is found.
