Boxer Rescue Ontario always needs additional foster homes. Without the support of these loving nurturing safe-houses we could not offer boxers in need a chance to rewrite their futures.

The unfortunate truth is that when we are full, dogs sometimes pay needlessly with their lives. It’s a heart breaking fact, but with commitment and love you can help.

What is involved?

Becoming a foster home is no small task. It takes a special dedication, love, and understanding. There is more to becoming a good foster parent then just grooming and feeding a dog.

Foster homes should have a crate as well as proper equipment and tools to bathe a dog. They should also have a feeding dish, and a place for their new charge to sleep.

Foster homes are expected to teach the dog manners and acquaint them with living inside. In addition, they need to determine if the dog can be left alone in the house without exhibiting destructive behavior. Foster parents promise to provide adequate opportunities that will determine how the dog reacts in different situations.

Foster parents are responsible for communicating what kind of personality the dog has and what living circumstances they feel may be suitable for him or her.

All of these responsibilities enable us to arrange a successful adoption.

In terms of financial support, foster homes are responsible for providing food for the foster dog, though sometimes we have donations to supplement this.

Veterinary costs are paid for by Boxer Rescue Ontario.

If you would like to become a Boxer Rescue Ontario foster home you must fill out the application and go through the screening process.
