We always need foster homes! Fostering is an incredibly rewarding, life-saving experience. There are many times we are unable to rescue a dog from a shelter without first finding a foster home. A foster home is intended to be a loving environment that prepares the adoptable Beagle for their forever home. Fosters help acclimate the dog to home life, provide the dog with love and attention and teach basic training commands. All medical expenses for the foster Beagle are paid by DFW Beagle Buddies.
Not quite sure about fostering? We’re here to help through the entire process! Please ask us if you have any questions or want to know more. Our Beagle Buddy Samantha wrote a letter on what fostering means to her. To read it, please click here.
We love our volunteers! Volunteers can help in a number of ways. They can take Beagles to the dog park, vet appointments, or meet and greets. They can also help pull Beagles from the shelter or transport them when necessary. We can even use volunteers to just play with or bathe the dogs! If you’re unable to foster or adopt but still want to help, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
If you haven’t worked with rescue dogs before, you are in for a wonderful experience. The Beagles are so thankful to be out of the shelter environment and will certainly express their gratitude to you in many ways – like kisses and asking for belly rubs!
