"Some people have wondered how I could foster a dog I will eventually have to give away, but the sadness of giving them away is nothing compared to the thought of never giving them a chance to live!"


Foster homes provided a nurturing home environment that includes food, shelter, exercise, and, most importantly, love. These animals come to understand that the safest place in the world is in the arms of their caretakers. Once the dog is ready, she or he is adopted into a thoroughly screened, caring, and permanent home.

We are in great need of foster homes for our rescues. Our first choice is to place these new rescues in foster homes rather than to board them. Not only does it save the expense of boarding but we get to know the dog and can then match them with the perfect person.

If you are interested in helping one of our rescues transition into his new life:



A Subfoster provides temporary housing for rescued Golden’s even if only overnight in an emergency, picks up dogs at shelters for overnight or a few days, cares for dogs while a foster is away on vacation. This is a wonderful way to help dog’s short term.
