Try our Foster-to-Adopt Program!!!


Do you just love one of our dogs but aren’t quite sure if he/she is the right match? Ask if there is one that is eligible for our Foster-to-Adopt Program! If you accept a Foster-to-Adopt dog, you will foster the dog for two weeks to evaluate whether your home is the right forever home for your new pooch friend. After two weeks, you must decide whether to adopt the dog, in which case you will have one week to complete the adoption contract and submit it along with the adoption fee to BDSC, or return the dog to us.


In order to be accepted into this program, Foster-to-Adopt applicants must have an approved application and home visit with BDSC. In addition, applicants must sign the Foster-to-Adopt Agreement which requires compliance with all of the Foster-to-Adopt terms and conditions, including the adoption procedures described in the Foster and Adoption Information Packet.


**Please note: The Foster-to-Adopt Program is designed to allow families to keep one of our fully vetted, ready to be adopted, rescue dogs in their home for a 2 week trial basis to be sure it is a right match for their family. We never will allow an unspayed, unvetted dog or cat out of our rescue and into a Foster-to-Adopt Program. Additionally, puppies, and highly adoptable dogs are NOT eligible for the Foster-to-Adopt Program (or dogs who would magically "fit" right in to ANY family without a blink of an eye). Please inquire as to if a dog you are interested in is eligible for our F-2-A program :)



Below are just some of the dogs that have successfully found their forever homes through the Foster-to-Adopt Program:
