is by far our organizations greatest need, and is one of the most rewarding experiences for anyone who volunteers.

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)!
