This is Rocket -- a super sweet Golden Retriever. Yes, he is handsome. And yes, HE IS ADOPTED. But there are many homeless and abandoned dogs and puppies out there who need your help. They need the help of a kind person who will open their home to them (as a foster home) until they are adopted.

Four million dogs are abandoned every year in the United States. Two million of those dogs are put down. Many dogs only have a chance of being adopted -- of having a second chance at life and love -- if they are taken in by a rescue organization. Bay State Dogs is one of those rescues. But being a shelterless rescue, there is no building where our dogs are housed. So we rely on -- we NEED -- people to volunteer to foster our dogs until they placed in loving forever homes.

Some people say they could never foster because they couldn't stand the thought of getting attached a dog then having to let him go. But could you stand the thought of that same dog never getting a second chance because there was no foster home for him to go? Fostering can be the most rewarding thing a true dog lover can do to support dogs in need. And we do our best to match the right dog to the right foster home to ensure a fulfilling experience for everyone.
