“Foster love” that wonderful people like you provide is the key to being able to save dog lives.
If we do not have enough caring people to open their hearts and homes to these dogs, dogs may be turned away, surrendered to shelters, dropped off in fiels, thoughtlessly given away to any taker (maybe a breeder/puppy mill front) or sold for profit to an uncaring buyer or incapable owner.
You can make an enormous difference in the world by fostering a homeless soul for a few weeks or a few months, while other members on the Minpinerie volunteer team work tirelessly at finding these dogs permanent homes.
As a doggie foster parent, you will feed, exercise, protect, train, love and cuddle a beautiful and vulnerable little homeless dog. Minpinerie is responsible for all the dog’s veterinary expenses. IF you have the time and patience, you are encouraged to teach the dog good behavior and commands, but most of our dogs, unless very young, already have these.
In general, Minpinerie rescues miniature pinschers and minpin/mixes, but also other small dogs in need, as a rule under twenty pounds (chis, chi mixes, poodle/mix, terriers, etc).
Be prepared to fall in love!!
All the other cats/dogs in the home must be fixed and up-to-date with shots. In the case of very small dogs, there must be no children under 10 because they can easily injure a dog by dropping or squashing him.
Expect to feel so good and accomplished as your foster leaves to join her new family. It can be hard, but the whole team along with all the other Fosters are here to support you, and consider that there will unfortunately always be another furry face waiting for your help!
BONUS: Minpinerie will give foster parents “first dibs” on adopting their foster dog!!!
Please consider becoming a valued part of our important team to help a dog in need. THANK YOU!
We hear : If I could I would save them all!, Here’s your chance. By saving one, you can help save many.
