Fostering Our Dogs

We are currently looking for foster homes for the dogs listed below.  There are several types of fosters needed at any one time.
  • Fosters Homes -There is nothing more rewarding than providing a loving home for a dog in need.  Our coordinators work with fosters to match dogs to the right foster home, and we provide foster training throughout the year. All you have to do is provide food, love, exercise and attention!
  • Permanent Fosters - Consider becoming a foster for one of our special needs dogs.  You provide a loving home for the dog for the rest of his life and we pay for all the medical bills.  You only have to provide food, toys, a bed and LOVE.
  • Temporary Fosters - Are you interested in babysitting?  We support our foster homes in every way that we can; including making sure their foster dog has a place to hang when they need to go out of town.  Most temporary foster gigs can be a weekend, or sometimes longer.  If you are not sure you are ready or able to foster, this is a great way to try it out!
If you think you can help with one of the dogs listed below and have been approved, please send an email to Mimi Suddath at

NRGRR fosters need to live in the larger Triangle area, within a 30 minute drive of one of our vet partners. If you have not filled out an application, please read the Steps to Foster flyer for more information about the application process and then complete the Foster Application.
The Holidays are right around the corner and we are always in need of temporary foster homes. If you can foster a dog for a couple of days or a week or more please send an email to Mimi Suddath at

Dogs Needing Fosters - December 7

Boone 21b

Boone - This is what we know about Boone:
Look at this cutie!  It's so hard to imagine that when this happy looking boy came into the shelter, they weren't sure he would survive.  He was skinny, malnourished and couldn't even stand on his own.  Yay to this shelter for pouring their love and energy into him!
After hearing about the shape he was in, you can imagine how heartwarming it is to get the below note from his transporter. 
Here's Boone!  He did well in the car and settled down after an initial frenzy of activity.  Loved the tech at the shelter so he will likely do well once he finds his person.  Snuggled with me after the ride but was scared and timid in the beginning. 


Pebbles - Coming Soon!
We have this 5 year old, healthy, beautiful girl being returned to program. Pebbles originally came from a backyard breeder.  She was adopted by a lovely family who have had her for the last few years. They are no longer able to keep her.
Her adopters talk about how loving she can be towards humans.  But she also has some issues with resource guarding.
So what kind of home would work best for Pebbles?   A no dog, no children, calm foster home.
Yes, she needs a specific home, but I'm sure that we can find the right spot for her!  Of course, if your home is right, we are here to help you in any way possible.
