Foster Homes!

I think I may have left the wrong impression in the last post.
GRRR did not have to turn down a rescue, at the last minute someone volunteered and we were able to pick them up. But it has been close, we are full up and we need any help we can get. We have several double rescues coming in. We may try to place Bella II in time to take one of the pairs. We have had several inquiries and are working hard to make a match.

Since we have readers all over the world, we need to remind you that your local rescue is running on "full" as well and they can use volunteers. We have received several e-mails from other groups telling us they have the same need for temporary homes.

This weekend there is a training class for foster volunteers to help understand how to introduce a new dog into your home, as well as coping with relocation problems.

My humans say that there is nothing more exciting than working with a homeless dog. It is like getting a present under the Christmas tree. If you ever find your life to be boring, here is the answer.

Help a homeless dog find a forever home.

  1. Helping the homeless is a furry good thing an' we think that GRRR is fulla' angels in peoples clothes.

  2. Oh wow. Wishing all the best with placements! Hope Bella II does find that special forever home soon!

  3. Mogley - foster homes are always in high demand and in today's world us dogs working in rescue are always scrambling - we know the drill. My momma says her dream is to never have to rescue many people want to be put out of work?

    All good rescues are almost always full up, keep up the good work.

  4. Hey Mogley,
    We've got the same problem as GRRR at AHGRR. More dogs coming in than going out. Rescues and shelters need as much help as people can provide and foster homes are desperately needed to keep needy pups from facing termination. You definitely weren't overstating the case. We're hoping everything goes well for Bella II this weekend.
