Fostering

WE NEED LOVING APPROVED FOSTER HOMES

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.

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.

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:   Petsburg Pet Clinic in Lafayette, Franklin Animal Clinic in Franklin, IN., Herrmann Veterinary Clinic in Noblesville, IN., Spencer Town & Country Veterinary Clinic in Spencer, IN., Mooresville Animal Hospital in Mooresville, IN., Noah’s Caring Hands in Indianapolis, IN., Arlington Heights Animal Hospital in Bloomington, IN.   ***We are partnering with other veterinary clinics across the state to provide services for our Fosters/Forever Fosters, for each approved foster application where we do not have a partnering vet we will seek one out and get it set up***

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.  If the foster is appropriate for an apartment we obviously realize most apartment complexes do not have fenced in yards – these applications will be considered on an individual basis.
