We are a very dedicated group of volunteers with a true love for these awesome dogs. Many of us call the mid-western area (SD, MN, IA, IL, WI) our home, but we also have volunteers as far away as New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Oregon, Texas, Louisiana!
All of our pups are staying in foster homes...these consist of working families, singles, and retirees - anyone with the love in their heart to take in a homeless pet and help them find their forever home. Fostering is so important to our group, as the more foster homes we have, the more pups we can help. We take fostering seriously, so therefore you must apply with us and allow a home visit also. These kids are precious and we want what is best for everyone involved. If you are interested in fostering, please let us know. You can Contact us below:
Foster Homes are truly the lifeblood of our organization. Our foster network supports and enjoys each others company. It is a fun and rewarding experience. Join us to help make a difference.
Our "chin-dren" do come from some situations where they are not "home ready" and that is the reason we put them into foster care first. You need to dig deep down, and decide if you are ready to accept an unsocialized pup into your home:
- One that is not house trained,
- One that is not used to being handled with care and is scared of any sudden move, noise, totally unaware of being in a home,
- One that doesn't understand that treats are good!!
- One that doesn't know a squeaky toy is not "scary"!!
- One that, with time, will understand that not all humans will"hurt" them,
- One that will need patience, guidance, "hopefully" another socialized pup to help them understand "all is good".
A good reference page about puppy mill survivors is found here. This is just a tip of the iceberg for some of these kids we help. Luckily, this above is the worst case scenario as some are owner surrenders from families that can no longer keep them, some are strays that found their ways to a local shelter and some come from responsible breeders that have asked us to help them get ready for a new home through our foster families.

We take great care in matching a foster home with a potential foster pup. Our goal is to help this little one find his/her forever home and we are the ones that can help make that happen!
