We are always seeking wonderful warm-hearted families willing to open their homes to a dog in need! We supply pretty much       everything you'll need - crate, collar & leash, food, medications, etc.  You supply the love!  We have a great group of foster   homes throughout the Merrimack Valley area and beyond.

 Typically we forward pictures/info about the rescue dogs who need foster homes, and let our foster families choose if a puppy
 or older dog would best fit in their home.  Our puppies are usually adopted within 2 to 3 weeks; adult dogs and some pups 
 may take up to a month or more to find a good home.

 We're pretty flexible with our foster homes.  Volunteers can have a foster dog and once it's adopted can take a break or jump
 right into  fostering another dog!  We can work around your schedule if you have something planned for a particular weekend 
 and give us sufficient time to find a short-term foster home while you're away.
 Fosters can also review applications for their foster dog if they choose and help us decide which home might be best for 
 your foster dog, or you can just be a foster... and take care of our rescue dogs with love and patience.

 We have an upbeat, friendly, positive group of volunteers. We're happy to help each other and share information about the
 dogs we have in our rescue program.  We can't rescue dogs without foster homes! JOIN US!
