If you are a GRIN member, you know we are always begging for fosters! The fact of the matter is that we have a terrific foster home base – but we always need more because unfortunately, more dogs need our help – the strays, owner relinquishments and shelter dogs. And we also are anticipating more Turkey dogs next month.
 
If you are a recent approved adopter, you can help us immediately! Taking in one dog this year means the world to us and that dog.
If you’re a member but haven’t adopted from us recently, we can speed you through the approval process. Contact our Foster Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
If you are not a GRIN member but would like to help, here’s the process. You can fill out a foster application on the website,
citing the best dog’s personality to match your lifestyle so your home is “stress less” as you foster. (This is all in case you fall in love with your foster and ‘fail” – meaning you want to adopt the furry pet!) If you are approved we do require you become a GRIN member before you can foster.
 
You will – as all of our foster homes – be paired with a “Foster Buddy” – someone who can walk you through any adjustments, call in prescriptions or preventatives as needed, etc. GRIN covers all medical needs. Please check out our website for more information on fostering under the volunteer tab.
 
Think of fostering this way. By showering a dog with love and affection and helping him relearn trust and love, you’re giving him a great second chance at a good life!

Fostering has been a wonderful experience for me, 12 years and 56 dogs later! I like being a step in the process of moving dogs into permanent, loving homes.
