American Brussels Griffon Rescue Alliance (ABGRA) always needs more volunteers to fulfill our mission to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes homes for dogs in need. We primarily focus on rescuing Brussels Griffons, Affenpinschers and mixes of these toy breeds.
We currently need foster homes in the WEST COAST states of California (primarily), but also in Oregon and Washington states. If you are an adult over 25 years old, work from home, have a securely fenced yard and can offer your time and love for Griffs and Affens in need, you may qualify to be a foster home! Most of our Griffs and Affens are rescued from puppy mills in the Lower Midwest. However the Griffs and Affens we rescue in the West Coast region are primarily from county/city shelters and by owner surrender. We are a charitable 501c3 organization, so fuel to transport these dogs is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, as are monetary donations.
Please go to our website, www.abgra.org.. You will find more information there and our foster home application, which is required for fostering and/or transporting foster application. If you cannot volunteer, but would still like to help, monetary donations for veterinary care are always needed too!
Please join with us to help rescued Griffs and Affens become healthy, happy dogs, enabling them to find their forever, loving homes. You will discover that nurturing and rehabilitating these precious little dogs will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life! If you are interested in adopting a Griff or Affen, fostering is a wonderful way to find the right dog! Our foster homes have first choice to adopt the dog they are fostering!
