Fostering for GSRBC...

Can you help a homeless dog in need?


#463 who had no one to come for him...

This poem by Diane Morgan, an award-winning author, who is very active in dog rescue. She says it all about fostering rescue dogs.

I am the bridge,
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, limping, depressed
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
When your eyes shine,
And your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.
I will let you go-not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever--
A new dog needs me now.


Can you help us by becoming a foster home for one of our rescue dogs?

Please read the entire page before asking to see our Foster Care Application and Contract.

German Shepherd Rescue of BC takes the commitment to our dogs very seriously. We are devoted to our breed, and would move heaven and earth to help even one of them. This is where our heart of hearts belongs. We are looking for like minded people who are just as devoted to these exceptional dogs.

Becoming a part of our community will change your life! It may sound grand to make that claim, but it's true. As a group we are supportive of one another and we value our foster homes. Our group keeps in daily contact via the wonders of the phone, internet, email and our Facebook Group for foster homes and our volunteer team. We are always available to answer questions, and offer guidance and support.
German Shepherd Rescue of BC is in urgent need of committed, and loving foster homes.
Fostering is the life blood of any rescue organization, and GSRBC is no different. If you already have a dog, a foster would be a great buddy for them. If you've got two, caring for one more isn't going to be any more difficult!
It is important to say that fostering requires a strong commitment. It is NOT to be entered into lightly and often causes more stress on our organization when we pull a dog and put him/her into the safety of a foster home, only to find out that the foster wasn't *really* really ready, and they'd like this dog out of their home "pronto". It's frustrating, and it's unfair to the dog...

 Often, we don't have any other place to put the dog and they end up going into a boarding shelter, which is not fair to them, and very costly to us. Please, be sure you have the time and commitment to offer before you open your home to one of these needy souls. We're not asking you to put your own comfort aside, we are just asking you to think about how your actions could effect a dog that has already been through so much. Patience, empathy and tolerance are a MUST.

Please contact us to look over our foster application and also our foster contract. These should be part of your decision making process. 
We would love to welcome you into our family of fellow dog lovers and volunteers, and are happy to have you aboard!

We were incorporated with non profit status on October 29th 2004.......


We recieved federal charitable status in Canada on April 1st 2005. Charitable #86377 4832 RR0001....


We depend on our wonderful extended family of fosters, volunteers, adopters and supporters to carry on in our mission....


Without them, we could never continue to save as many dogs as we do....


It is thanks to people like you that we are successful!


100% of all donations go directly into the rescued dog's new beginning....


Providing everything from medical treatement, to training, food supplies and in some cases, boarding....


Adoption fees help, but are not enough.... The average cost per dog in 2010 was approximately $2166.15
