Fostering a boxer is very much like raising a child in that its at times exhausting, heartbreaking, frustrating and yet joyful, fun, and extremely rewarding. Knowing that you have saved a life is quite a wonderful feeling.
Our foster homes are our most important resource, without them we could not continue!
Things to know
Fostering a dog means taking a dog into your home with unknown training history, background, socialization, house manners, temperament etc. While we do our best to only take in dogs we ultimately feel are safe for placement, it is nearly impossible to determine a dogs temperament in a shelter environment with the time we are allowed.
NCBR does not knowingly take in dogs who are known to be dog aggressive, have a known bite history or have shown any signs of human aggression.
Foster Homes must be patient and allow for some adjustment problems in the beginning. It can be stressful for both you and the dog to be in a new situation.
All dogs will see a licensed veterinarian before entering a foster home.
Foster homes need to have the ability to keep foster dogs separated (crated) from any pets living in the home (only and until its deemed safe to introduce to resident pets).
Foster Homes need to be comitted to fostering from rescue to adoption. The amount of time needed to find a permanent home for a dog can vary from weeks to months.
NCBR does not have a boarding facility, therefore we are only able to take boxers into our program when we have open, willing and committed foster homes.
All foster homes are assigned a foster home mentor, a point of contact available to address problems, concerns and help to ensure a pleasant experience for the foster family and foster dog(s).
