Foster Application & Contract

Big Bones Canine Rescue

Fostering is a great way to help dogs in need!  By gaining experience in a home, so much more information can be provided to potential adopters, which greatly increases a dog’s chances of finding a home.  It’s a wonderful time for the dog to be removed from the stressors of a shelter environment and learn how to behave in a home setting!  Potty training, crate training, obedience, and leash manners are just a few examples of advantages fostered dogs may have over shelter dogs, whose stories remain unknown. 

At BBCR, we are proud of our foster team!  We’d love for you to join us!  Our fosters are committed to the success of each of their dogs and invest their own time and money into their futures.  BBCR provides all vet care and fosters are asked to provide food, toys, love and a little TLC!  Sometimes, depending on availability, BBCR is able to provide crates or assistance with food if there is a special diet.

Dear Dog Lover,

Thank you for your interest in adopting/fostering a dog with Big Bones Canine Rescue! We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of kindness and generosity we have seen in the past week, with more than quadruple the applications we normally receive. Because we are volunteer run, we are overjoyed and overwhelmed with the number of applications at this time!  Give us a chance to catch up and we’ll be back before you know it.

If you’ve already submitted an application, we’ve got great news!  Colorado rescues are considered essential during the Covid-19 pandemic and we are being allowed to keep on keeping on!  Social distancing will be practiced during meet and greets.  We also request that you bring some hand sanitizer.  Above all else, please reschedule if you’re not feeling well!
