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!

Host Update for Polly! See what her host said about their time with Polly while she looks for her furever family: "Our family had the pleasure of hosting Polly for the week, and we absolutely fell in love with her! She did amazing with our kids and other dog! She's super friendly and loves to play. She also wants to climb up in your lap just to cuddle for down time. She did ok leash walking, until we saw some squirrels (but really, that's every dog, right?) She is an awesome car rider, super chill and curious. Polly is completely housebroken, no accidents at all the whole week! She also was wonderful sleeping in her crate - no whining or complaining each night at bedtime. She knows how to sit and is super smart and seems like she would be a fast learner for other training! Polly quickly learned to go in her crate for meals and a treat if we had to leave the house without her. She is super sweet and laid back: our kids play instruments (drum and flute) and practice daily, and neither jam session bothered her! The roomba vacuum didn't worry her either. She can be a little mouthy but stops when told no. Polly really is the bestest girl ever and soooooo loving! She is the perfect package and will bring joy and love to some lucky family forever!! Polly LOVES ice cubes, water buffalo horns, and behind the ear scratches (and my, what adorable ears!!) Thanks for the opportunity to love on this sweet girl! We can't wait to see her 'Happy Tail' story!"Ready to meet fun, loving, gentle Polly?!

Thank you for this wonderful write up about our sweet girl Polly!!!

The host’s dog is our dog’s doppelgänger, at least from the back! (We got our dog from Saving Grace last year). 😁

Love the one ear up/one ear down.

What a great write up! She is one adorable girl!!

What a sweetheart!

Sweet girl!!

She is a super smart, active girl who will be a wonderful companion for sure!

Madonna is an incredibly smart, food and play motivated girl who would LOVE an active owner and family. She’d probably make a good running partner and definitely hiking partner. I can’t remember if she likes a good ball but she plays well in her play group. Love her!

Madonna is a love bug-she will curl up next to you, rides in the car like a champ, and gets along well with other dogs. We loved having her stay with us for a bit while she weaned her puppies!

Lucky pup to have a stretch at your house.

Madonna, a gentle soul.

Host Update for Goldie! See what his host said about their time with Goldie while he looks for his furever family: "Goldie is a wonderful family dog just waiting for his family. He has clearly been a beloved pet and is 100% ready to regain that status ASAP.We loved having Goldie for the weekend! What a cool, mellow, easy-going dog. Some highlights:-He's house-trained and crate-trained and likes to sleep in on the weekends. -He's quiet - he didn't bark or whine a single time all weekend. -He respects furniture and belongings and can be left alone in the house.-He loves kids, and kids love him! -He's super low-maintenance - up for a short walk or hike, or a little play session with a ball if you want, but otherwise content to just hang out. -He's friendly to all people and dogs - totally nonreactive when people come to the door, meeting people and dogs on walks, etc. -He rides well in the car.-He's a big, very low-key, chill dog who shows his inner puppy briefly (and adorably) when given a ball or toy."This golden boy is the whole package and ready to find his family. Could it be you?! To meet Goldie, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page. Learn more about Goldie here: loom.ly/qdkoiPY ... See MoreSee Less

Goldie is a great boy. He will make someone an awesome addition to their family. On the farm he is chill and a joy to be around.

We signed up for a sleepover this weekend! Feel free to send him my way if he’s up for another weekend away from the farm!! ❤️❤️

He is fabulous!!!

Hi, Goldie is a beautiful dog. I was interested in him but I went to the web site you were showing and saw his information. As much as I would love this boy he is too big for me to handle. It is just me and if I needed to pick him up I would not be able to. So I need to stick with small to medium size. My favorite dog is Golden Retriever but again it would be too big for me. I sure hope Goldie finds his forever home soon.

What a great dog !!!!!!

We hosted Goldie, and he truly is one of the easiest-going, calmest, friendliest, most loving and low-maintenance dogs we've had the pleasure of hosting or fostering. And so cute when he does get a little playful burst. LOVE Goldie - someone is going to be super lucky to have this big boy as a companion.

He is the sweetest boy and just wants to love on you

Goldie IS beautiful! Prayers.for a loving forever home soon.

Beautiful pup right there
