Foster Homes

                We are always in need of more foster homes!

We do not have a physical location and rely upon the generosity of families that open their homes to provide a temporary Safe Haven. Fostering is a challenging but rewarding experience.

We pay for all vetting, food, toys, leash and collar for the foster dog or puppy. You provide love, socialization, and start the dog or puppy on basic training. An adoption coordinator is always available to discuss any challenges that you are facing. We want a successful experience for you and the dog in your care.

A foster commitment can be for as little as 1 week or longer based on your availability. We can only save as many dogs as we have foster homes for. Every week we have to turn away hundreds of requests to accept dogs into our adoption program.

Current foster needs – 

These dogs are also available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets him/her when he/she arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you!
