Introduction To Fostering
We appreciate your consideration of volunteering for the NBGR foster home program
Foster homes are the lifeblood of any rescue organization. Without them, we’d have no choice but to turn away Brussels Griffons from our program.
NBGR is always in need of caring foster parents who will open their homes to temporarily care for homeless Brussels Griffons. It can be a very rewarding -- and fun -- experience to add a Griff to your household until a forever home is found! We especially need foster homes for our senior Griffs, for whom it sometimes takes longer to find good homes.
Because we usually don't have much time to get a rescue out of its current environment and into a foster home, we try to place a dog in a foster home near where it was turned in. NBGR is a national organization, so we need foster homes throughout the United States, especially in Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio, and Missouri, where most of the rescue dogs are surrendered.
All Brussels Griffons in our rescue program must be spayed or neutered, brought up to date on vaccinations, tested for heartworm, and have any health issues addressed before being put up for adoption. Most of our rescues must first be placed in foster homes while they receive that medical attention and in order for their foster parents to evaluate their personalities to ascertain the type of home for which each is best suited.
The Responsibilities of an NBGR Foster Parent
Thank you for being the special type person who helps move Griffs to secure, loving, and happy forever homes.
