Ever think about fostering a rescue pup?

Jackson here is going to tell you all about how fostering works!

Back In Black Dog rescue will supply EVERYTHING you guys would need in order to foster a pup like me. You see, I had a foster through this rescue, and that's ultimately what saved my life.

Unfortunately, my parents who had bought be from a breeder couldn't afford me when I got sick. Though they didn't dump me in the woods, or off the road, they DID surrender me to the shelter. I was very sad, and not feeling the greatest. Let me tell you, the shelter is a scary place. Especially for a little guy like myself. I was only about 10 weeks old at the time.


Shortly after I was there, a BIBDR representative came to pick me up, and I went to a foster home with other doggies and kitties, too!

BIBDR supplied puppy food, toys, a crate, a collar & leash, a harness, doggie bowls, and they even can offer blankets and beds if you make a request for them! If there's something you need that they don't have, just give them some time - they usually get on it right aways!

Once I was in a foster home, the rescue started to make vet appointments for me. Turns out, I had puppy strangles, which was curable. I'm all betters now, but the rescue was worried about me at first because they thought that I wouldn't live a normal, happy life. Good thing I'm a fighter - look at me now!

Did I mention the rescue paid for the vetting costs? That's right - just because a foster pup lives with you, doesn't mean you are responsible for the moneys at the vets office. They cover it! They also supply the needed heartgard and nexgard that every pup needs to stay heartworm free, and tick and flea free.

In a nut shell, the rescue provides everything. What's your job in the foster world? To love the pup unconditionally until, like myself, they find their furever home. Love them, take them on walks, teach them tricks, etc. That's it. You basically have another doggie living in your home, but with no financial obligations!

On this page, you will find other pups that wouldn't be here today without a foster home. This rescue tries their best to make sure the pup gets all the good stuffs to get them feeling better so they can find a furever home.

Hit by a car. Shelter staff picked him up, but if rescue couldn't be found to support Liam's veterinary bills, he would have been euthanized. Because a foster stepped up, Liam's life was saved.



I'm in training at Lead Your K9. My sister, Cora, and myself, were found as strays - practically "semi-feral". Because of a team of fosters, my sister, Cora, and I are off to better lives.

I was found as a stray in Georgia. Without the rescue taking me in foster care, I could have been hit by a car, or worse, starved to death. Now, I am training to be my mommies service doggie!
