Foster Homes Needed for Deserving Dogs

The pups that need a foster home - puppies either 1) are old enough (must be at least 10 weeks old) or 2) have not had all age appropriate vaccines. Some puppies are both too young and not properly vaccinated and need a foster home until they reach both milestones. Others just need foster care until they receive their proper vaccinations. The foster time for puppies without moms is a minimum of 3 weeks.
The adult dogs that need a foster home - the moms that come with young pups will need to stay with them until they are 8 weeks old at which time mom can return to Saving Grace. The pups will stay in foster care until 10 weeks old though. We also need recovery homes for dogs living at Saving Grace that have had a major surgery such as an amputation or eye removal. The recovery foster time is usually 10 days to 2 weeks. There may be other cases where the time frame on recovery is longer depending on the dog and circumstances.
Dogs that don't need a long term foster home - any dog posted on our website is adoptable and has a place at Saving Grace. These dogs are able to run and play every day on site and meet potential families Monday through Friday during appointment times. We do offer a Weekend Program for these dogs so they get a chance to experience some time away from Saving Grace and what it is like to be in a home. The Weekend Program is offered about every other weekend and we just happen to have one this weekend, see below!

JoJo is a dream dog looking for a forever home
Jojo is an absolute dream!! He is a 3-4 year old American Bull Dog who puts a whole new meaning to the word "chill". He is absolutely lovable and super sweet and gets along with ALL dogs and horses. He isn't moved by much of anything and perfectly content to lay around and enjoy the outdoors observing all the others at play. JoJo likes to go on car rides too. He is a little shy at first but very affectionate once he warms up.
If you know someone looking for a super chill laid-back and lovable dog please tell them about Jojo.
