Foster a Dog From Margaret's Saving Grace Bully Rescue

A Foster Home is a temporary home for a rescue pet until Margaret's Saving Grace Bully Rescue find's a permanent home. If you are interested in potentially providing a permanent home for one of our rescued pet's you should fill out a adoption application instead. During the foster process, the foster home is allowed a two week trial period to determine if the foster pet is match for the home.

Fostering involves opening your heart and home to a pet in need, and giving them a safe place and TLC until they’ve found their new family. Some foster pet's are easier than others, but all bring great joy and the reward of knowing that you played a part in saving that pet's life.

Margaret's Saving Grace Bully Rescue does not have a local facility. When we rescue a pet, we need to have a safe place for them to go so they can begin their transition to learning what it is like to be in a home environment . Foster families not only provide a loving temporary home for the pet, they are our insight into the pet's personality and behavior. As the foster pet realizes they are safe and cared for, they begin to trust and open up, and become part of your family. You will get to know them, what they need, their level of socialization, and the type of home and family that will best suit them.

All fostered pet's need to be kept inside and treated as a member of the family.Margaret's Saving Grace Bully Rescue will provide veterinary care for the foster pet, food, and any other needs, you will provide house training, and a loving home environment you are welcome to supply food if you'd like . Please understand if your foster pet is in need of a vet you must contact us and get approval to take them to our vet or yours failure to do so can result in the foster family paying the vet bill. The foster parent will have the first choice to adopt their fostered pet, you will have a two week period to decide if you'd like to adopt.
