A tragic fire destroys the family home, an unexpected job loss destines a family to move from a house to an apartment, a health issue forces major life changes….in each of these scenarios and countless others, a beloved family dog loses the only home that it has known. Washington German Shepherd Rescue can provide a safe haven for these dogs within their foster program, saving them from the cold confines of an animal shelter and an uncertain future, but only if there are enough foster families available to help. Do you, or someone you know, have extra room at your home and in your heart to foster one of these special dogs? Have you considered getting a dog, or perhaps a second dog, but do not want to commit to a 12-15 year lifespan? Perhaps fostering is right for you! German Shepherds long for companionship, enjoy exercise, and are eager to learn. Foster homes can provide all of this and more, preparing the dog for his or her special new family. A soft bed to rest on, a gentle hand to provide comfort, a safe haven during an otherwise stressful period of their life. Fostering a displaced dog is both challenging and rewarding. Special people helping special dogs find their forever home.
