Penny, a black lab, gives birth to six pups

We love it when tiny paws come into the world, but our facility is not the best environment for a new mom dog and her pups because it’s crowded and noisy. These future pets need a quiet, calm environment during the next few weeks. At times like this, our need for foster parents goes from great to urgent.

So, what’s up with this foster program?

The GBHS Foster Parents provide short-term homes for kittens, puppies, dogs and cats who need need a little extra TLC before they can be adopted. Your spare bedroom or bathroom could be put to use giving puppies or kittens somewhere to grow for two to three weeks, or you could give a dog undergoing heart worm treatment somewhere soft to lay down at night for just a few short months.

By offering your time, love and attention, you prepare your foster dog or puppy for adoption into a permanent, loving home. Opening your heart and home to a pet in need is one of the most rewarding ways to make a difference. All you need is a small space and a lot of love—we supply everything else.

Foster Parents are required to attend a brief orientation session and must have all other pets in their home up to date on shots and spayed or neutered prior to having a GBHS pet placed with them.

If you are able to fill this need, please contact Stella Burton, gbhsfoster@gmail.com. For more information on Penny, her pups, or our foster program, please call (205) 942-1211.
