FOSTER HOMES NEEDED! Fostering is a gift of a second chance!
Fosters are the heart and soul of our rescue efforts! We can only take in dogs for whom we have fosters homes for. We do not have a facility. Foster parents open up their hearts and homes to these deserving dogs until forever homes are found.
Fostering is FREE! Food and vet care are provided, and anything else that may be needed for your foster dog. It usually takes anywhere from a few weeks to several months for a dog to get adopted.
Please send all inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. Once reviewed, and if approved, a volunteer will contact you to set up a meet and greet with the dog you are interested in. Our goal is to make the best possible match. A home visit/ meet and greet is arranged, and we ask that a 2 week trial period be given to determine if the dog is a good fit for your family (foster to adopt). RCBB does not want anyone to feel pressured to keep a dog they don't have a good connection with. (The full amount of the adoption fee will be reimbursed during this 2-week trial period.) If you decided that the dog is a good fit, a contract will then be signed and finalized. (The process time can vary depending on volunteer availability)

*SPONSOR A RESCUE DOG PROGRAM*
To help us in our efforts, we have decided to start a "Sponsor a Rescue Dog Program" to help us ensure that each dog in our care is happy and healthy while searching for their forever home! It is an excellent way you can help save a life, even if you are unable to foster or adopt. By sponsoring one of our dogs, you help provide him/her with food, toys, treats, and vet care! Sponsoring helps to offset our costs- in turn enabling us to help more dogs in need! Together we can make a difference! RCBB will keep you informed of your sponsor dog’s progress. Your name will also appear on our page as a sponsor (in that dog’s album), or your sponsorship may remain anonymous if you prefer. Here is the list of sponsor levels, but of course any amount is accepted and appreciated.
