G.R.I.N. brings in goldens from many situations - abandonment, relinquishment or rescue from a shelter. Each dog, regardless of their background and history, needs to be evaluated by a G.R.I.N. volunteer to ensure proper placement with a forever family. This is where our foster program comes in! In addition to evaluating the dog, we will also ask you to help us match the golden with a permanent home. Below is a brief outline of what we expect from our foster homes.
Foster Home Responsibilities:
The amount of dogs we bring in is contingent upon the availablity of our foster homes. The more homes we have, the more dogs we can rescue.
We recognize that without foster homes, G.R.I.N. could not survive. We are glad to give our foster families the first option to adopt their foster dog.
