Foster homes are the backbone of every rescue. As a volunteer run organization, we don't have a public shelter. Instead, we depend on an army of volunteers to open their homes and hearts to American Bullies (and other breeds) in need. The more foster families we have, the more dogs that we can take in.
We match each foster home with a dog that is the best fit to their family and lifestyle. Some foster parents prefer adult dogs, and some prefer puppies. We make sure all of our dogs are temperament tested before entering the rescue. We want to make sure we are only placing dogs that are ready for a home environment, of stable temperament and that they will be ambassadors for their breed.
ABRO provides all veterinary care, food, crate, collar and leash for your foster dog. We can also provide bowls, toys and other items if needed. Foster dogs can stay in foster care anywhere from a few weeks, to a few months, sometimes (unfortunately) even longer. We cannot give an affirmative time frame as to how long a dog will need to be in a foster home. We ask for a minimum 30 day commitment. This gives us a chance to learn more about the dogs personality, quirks, and work on any training needed. The more we know about the dog, the easier it is to match them to adopters.
We ask our foster homes to be committed to their ABRO foster just as they are to their own dogs.
