Foster

Our foster homes play a critical role at Saving Grace, providing a safe place for pups who need a little time before they are ready for adoption. Watch our video, then read below to learn more about these needs and how you can help!

What dogs are in need of foster homes?

There are two main types of foster dogs in the Saving Grace foster program:

  • Puppies under six months and pregnant moms or moms with nursing pups come to Saving Grace and are immediately placed into foster care so we can get them up to date on their vaccinations.

    We have all numbers of puppies who are in need, from singles and pairs all the way up to large litters, and of course moms with any number of nursing pups.

  • Dogs needing time to recover can be puppies all the way up to seniors. There are many reasons why they may need time in a foster home but typically these dogs have suffered from an injury or illness, may need time to rest before or after surgery, or simply may need a quiet home for a little while to rest or put on some much needed weight.

Occasionally we have dogs that donโ€™t fit into the categories above and weโ€™ve been known to have the odd cat or kitten!

How do I become a foster home for Saving Grace?

Start your fostering journey by reading through Step 1: Understand what it takes. If you are new to fostering don’t worry, we will guide you through each step and be with you through the entire process.

    For how long will I have a foster dog?

    We need foster homes from 2-10 weeks depending on the dogโ€™s needs. Newborn puppies will need a foster home for about 10 weeks; whereas a dog recovering from a surgery may need 2-3 weeks. Each dogโ€™s situation is unique, and their fostering needs will be as well.

    What is the difference between Fostering and Hosting?

    Our Foster program is for very young puppies, sometimes with their moms; and older dogs that need extra TLC after surgery or illness. Foster periods vary but range from 2 to 10 weeks while we work to get these fosters ready for adoption. Our Hosting program is for healthy dogs who are already available for adoption and the Host period is one weekend, or a week during our special holiday host events.
