The Foster Home program is the most important aspect of ESRA's organization. Our Foster Homes provide immeasurable assistance to our Springers by providing them with housing, medical care, rehabilitation, exercise, and love. Frequently dogs that are in our Foster program have previously been in stressful and sometimes abusive situations and the Foster Home environment gives these dogs time to heal their wounds and gain confidence in their relationship with others before they go on to permanent placement.
Fostering can lead to adoption - the choice is yours. It can be a chance to experience life with a Springer before making a long-term commitment.
ESRA Foster Homes are screened, placing dogs only in homes that are approved as responsible and reliable.
All dogs will be spayed and neutered, fully vaccinated, and tested for heartworm while in foster care.
To graduate a dog from foster care to permanent placement is a success and a happy ending made possible only by ESRA's foster home members!
If you would like to foster a dog for ESRA, please complete a Foster Home Application (http://www.springerrescue.org/join/foster_form.html), or contact our Foster Home Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
