Host a Dog

Will you take a deserving dog for a sleepover to give them a break?

Our Host a Dog Sleepover

The exposure you provide and the behavioral input you can gather is vital to helping the dogs find forever homes. This is such a great experience for not only our dogs, but also for the families that have opened their hearts and homes to our dogs who are awaiting families of their own.

Fun things to do with to show off your Sleepover Guest!

Benefits of hosting

  • Reduction in stress (dogs get to rest & recharge)
  • Extra exercise
  • Socialization
  • Exposure in the community
  • Valuable feedback on behavior in a home environment
  • Learning house manners
  • Extra love and attention for the dogs and the hosts!
  • Happy dogs and happy volunteers!
  • Increased adoptions, some by our hosts that fall in love!

Take the first step to a sleepover!

This week's happy tails comes from one of our amazing volunteers! She couldn't help but falling in love and adopting Trina who is now Gracie Lou. "Gracie Lou (fka Trina) has filled my heart with so much joy. She has the sweetest temperament and loves to cuddle. She is my 40 pound lap dog. She is the best playmate for my other Saving Grace alum, Sydney, and loves my niece and nephews. We have recently started fostering regularly and she loves taking on a mama dog role - loving on our guests and playing with them to make them feel welcome. She is the perfect addition to my home. I’m so grateful to my volunteer friends Lori and Hannah for suggesting her as my Thanksgiving holiday sleepover “guest”. She helps fill the void left by my sweet Lanie that passed last year."#adopted #weloveourvolunteers #happytails ... See MoreSee Less

I adore Jupiter! He is a big boy, but so sweet and calm. Great in his crate, he has done well with other female friends in his play group, but he is all about people- loves attention, hugs and kisses! Super affectionate and happy ❤️

What a wonderful doggo!

What a great dog! 😍

This sweet gentleman sounds like a safe bet for anyone looking for a kind, loving and devoted friend 🥰

So dear

Kids?

Judith is so wonderful! Hounds are sweet, sweet natured dogs, but Lemon hounds are even more sweet natured! She is so lovely, friendly and affectionate- she is one of our “ anytime” dogs which means she gets along great with all kinds of dogs- male, female, old, young, big and small- she would make a great addition to any family!

Beautiful girl 💕💕

She is just so sweet!
