Thank you so much for your interest in fostering a dog for CBBR. By opening up your home to a foster dog, you are not only helping to save lives, you are providing the individual attention and love these dogs desperately need.
Our dog foster program is designed to help dogs get a second chance at finding a home — a chance they may not have received. Many of the dogs who need foster homes require extra care and attention and in a loving foster home. Fostering ensures each dog can get the individual attention he or she needs to find a forever family. Foster homes are asked to provide care for the dogs, as well as transportation to and from veterinary appointments as needed. Care for foster dogs includes feeding according to size and needs, exercise according to energy levels, and lots of play time and positive socialization. Although fostering is a lot of work, it is a very rewarding experience. By participating in this programme, you are saving lives and helping many different types of dogs find the families they’ve been longing for.
Once you have completed your foster application form & are a suitable candidate, our foster coordinator will get in touch with you for a property inspection & an orientation & training session.
Please note - we can only foster within the Christchurch area
