Fostering: A Refuge In The Middle Of The Storm
If you have been thinking about becoming a foster parent for one of our wonderful Boston Terriers, you need to know that your help is critical in saving the lives of America’s Favorite Dog. Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida, Inc. does not have any shelter facilities. Instead, when a dog comes into our rescue, we immediately seek to relocate him or her to one of our pre-approved foster homes. For this reason, foster homes are vital to meeting our organization’s objectives: giving needy dogs a shelter and love while we find them a fur-ever home.
Ready to foster? Here are the steps.
You’re Approved! Now What?
Once you are approved, we will then work with you to find the right foster for your home. If you are new to fostering, we have a great support system to help you with any questions or concerns that you may have.
We have a list of approved veterinarians throughout many areas in the state, and continue to approve new ones as foster homes open in specific areas. If your foster dog needs to see the vet for any reason, please contact our Medical Director for approval. We pay for all our vetting services at the time they are done, but pre-approval is mandatory.
In cases of life threatening emergencies, we urge foster homes to contact our Medical Director as soon as possible. If our Medical Director cannot be reached, our rescue will not refuse payment for any life saving veterinary intervention.
What Does it Mean to be a Foster?
We will rely on you to provide a temporary home to homeless Bostons who have lost their families or have been abandoned or abused. Our foster homes help each Boston heal and get prepared for their fur-ever homes. Without foster homes, dogs would die in shelters.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!
