Adopting any dog is a commitment meant to
last the lifetime of the dog. The average
Old English Sheepdog lives 12 years so it
isn't a decision to be taken lightly. If you
aren't quite ready to adopt or foster an Old
English Sheepdog but would still like to
help a dog in trouble, you might consider a
donation. The veterinary care required to
get an Old English Sheepdog ready for
adoption can be expensive and many times
adoption fees don't cover all the required
care. Lack of funding and good foster homes
are often the two biggest reasons rescues
have to turn a dog away. Donations simply
make it possible for us to help and place
more homeless dogs.
Have you ever considered fostering?
foster homes allow Carolinas Old English
Sheepdog Rescue to save more dogs in need.
These wonderful individuals and families
provide a safe and loving place for a dog to
stay until their new family finds them. The
time, love and patience invested by fosters
helps to begin the transformation of an
unwanted, neglected or abused Old English
Sheepdog into a wonderful companion for some
lucky family. If you think you're one of
these special people and would like to learn
more about fostering an OES,
please contact us.
You will be helping to save maybe one more
dog that might not have otherwise had a
chance. It can be a very rewarding
