|FOSTER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED!|
We are faced with the reality of having to turn away Boxers and we desperately need your help. There are dogs we cannot help because we simply do not have enough foster homes.
The most common reason that people give for not becoming a foster home is that they would get too attached and could never cope with the dog leaving. I ask you... can you cope with knowing that because you were afraid to open your heart and your home to a dog, some may die? Dramatic? Yes, but the reality of the large number of Boxers that we are not saving is sadly true.
We cannot give these dogs the help they require without foster homes. If you are interested in becoming a foster home or would like to know more about fostering, please contact us. THE DOGS ARE WAITING!
We try to place dogs in foster homes most appropriate for their age, temperament and circumstances so we ask that all potential foster parents fill out a questionnaire. (If you have already adopted a dog from us you are already approved.)

General Information about fostering
Most dogs in our adoption program are fostered by volunteers while they await adoption. Our foster homes are a group of individuals and families like yourself that have made room in their lives for homeless and unwanted boxers. However, although we are in great need of temporary homes for dogs, we must take into consideration the circumstances of each home. We do not often know what to expect from the dogs coming into our care, and we must make sure that the foster homes can deal with these uncertainties. We do our best to evaluate the dogs before taking them into rescue, but there are many things that do not reveal themselves until the dogs are living in a home setting.
Some of the factors of the foster home that must be taken into consideration are the age of any children, the presence of cats or other animals, the security of a yard, and whether other dogs in the household are intact or neutered males or females. We are as careful as we can be to match the home with a suitable dog, and the first step in accomplishing this is for interested parties to fill out a foster home information sheet. This gives us an understanding of the family's lifestyle and will help to match them with a suitable dog.
Many people ask us how we can take dogs into our homes, care for them, love them, and then give them up. The answer is simple...they need our help! Yes...we do find ourselves becoming emotionally attached...but we know that we are simply there to help. There is nothing more rewarding than placing a beloved foster dog into a new and loving home.
By taking these boxers into our homes, we are providing them an opportunity to find a permanent, loving home. Fostering can be one of the most rewarding parts of being a boxer rescue volunteer. By becoming a foster home, you can alter the course of a boxer's life.
Many of the boxers in shelters will die if we cannot take them into our foster program. If you have ever considered fostering, we can use your help.
Please consider fostering as a way to show your support and concern for the boxers in need of your help.
You may be their only hope.
Responsibilities Of A Boxer Rescue Foster Home:
When you take a foster Boxer into your home, you commit to caring for the animal until he or she is adopted. You are responsible for feeding good quality food and nutritious treats, providing appropriate toys, and giving lots of love. We provide the medical care, and moral support.
Animals active in our foster program receive vaccinations, heartworm tests, are dewormed, and are spayed and neutered prior to entering the foster home, unless there is a medical reason to delay surgery. Additional medical expenses must be approved by Northeastern Boxer Rescue, unless there is an emergency.
