Please consider filling out the application below and becoming part of the OLBH family of foster homes.  So many dogs in need and we cannot help them without YOU.  Make the choice, send in your foster application for pre-approval, that way when a dog in need comes up that you would like to foster you’re already approved! This is critical for those dogs placed on euthanasia lists in shelters, they do not have unlimited time for us to approve foster applications.

One of the first steps to getting a dog ready for their forever home can be fostering.

While we try to give each dog all the attention we can, there are only so many hours in a day. Fostering provides not only space in the rescue to save another life or create more room in the kennels, it provides the foster dog with the ability to learn how to live in a home so we can better match the dog with their forever home!

Some foster dogs require medical care – some need socialization – some just need to know that there are wonderful humans out there that truly care about them.

We require that the foster live in the home as part of the family AND we require a fenced in yard – we do not approve invisible fencing.

OLBH provides for all of our foster’s needs, you provide a safe, loving environment for them to flourish in.  All of our fosters medical care must be provided by veterinarians we have partnered with: (listed veterinarians can change, we will update as soon as possible)

Some of the dogs we get are feral – they’ve come a long way but, have a long way to go. All of these kids are in need of experienced foster homes to work with them, socialize them and help them with their journey to finding their own forever homes.
