Spring will soon be upon us and spring puppies will be dumped in shelters!
Consider contacting your local rescues (look for all the right things they need to do - vetting, contracts, lifelong support of the dog, applicant screening, home checks, taking the mom if they do take puppies, 3 week minimum eval period, speuter before adoption, etc.) right now to see if they might be interested in a puppy foster home. Rescues often would like to take puppies but sometimes don't have foster homes with people who are able to do the round the clock work of a baby!
While not always purebred, you can help a young dog get off to a good start and get them to a great forever home, just before they hit the teen stage.
Puppies I've either fostered and/or taken pictures of:
That's just a few of the adorable pups I've met - hope it is something to consider! Feel free to ask questions for other people who've fostered too.
