Local shelters are packed with dogs that desperately need foster care to survive.
TSBR continues to receive more pleas from shelters, owners, and breeders in a crisis than we can manage, and so many are faced with uncertain futures. The number of sporting breed dogs in need of rescue is overwhelming - Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, German Shorthaired Pointers, German Wirehaird Pointers, Irish Setters - they are all there, and the euthanasia rate continues to grow.
TSBR works diligently to save as many as we can, but we are a foster based rescue organization and can only save as many as we have foster homes - with your help we can offer a second chance to so many more. If you open your heart and your home to foster, you are not "just saving one dog" - it opens a kennel and buys a few more days for the dog that otherwise might not have a space in the shelter.
You're not just giving them a better life. You're giving yourself one.
You may give just a few days or weeks of your time, but to the dogs who benefit it means - "I'M ALIVE."
Become a part of our team of volunteer foster families and experience the tremendous amount of pride when watching your foster "all grown up" and enjoying a wonderful and exciting new life like Rubi (formerly Polly)!
