Basset Hound Rescue of Ontario (BHRO) currently has volunteer foster home opportunities available and we'd love to hear from you!
Fostering a basset awaiting his/her adoption is a very rewarding, hands on experience; one that truly makes a difference in the life of a basset in need, and one that we are sure will enrich your life too.
Foster opportunities are available throughout Ontario. All costs incurred while fostering (food, medical care, etc.) are fully covered by BHRO; all you need to provide is a home filled with love and understanding for your new house guest!
Fostering is the perfect opportunity to meet and share a part of your life with so many comical characters. Taking part in the happy endings when they find their "forever homes", knowing you brought happiness to the adoptive family and truly gave a special hound a second chance at life is rewarding beyond words.
Fostering can bring companionship into your life, and/or the life of your own dog(s), without the long-term, financial aspect of dog ownership. Most bassets requiring a foster home, are well adjusted hounds, finding themselves homeless through no fault of their own, but rather a change in their previous owners life such as divorce, a new baby, a new job or re-locating. BHRO takes great care in placing the right basset into the right home to ensure a perfect match and this extends to foster homes as well.
If you are interested in learning more about our foster program and have a stable, loving home to offer a homeless hound in need, whether it be on a short term basis only, longer term, during emergency situations only, etc., please complete our foster application below. One of our volunteers will be in contact with you soon.
