Want to foster a Swampie?
Did you know that becoming a foster dog parent actually helps save the lives of two dogs at once? By taking a down-on-their-luck dog into your home, you are making it possible for Swamp Haven to help another animal in-need. And while it’s difficult to pass your foster on to their forever family, you are opening your home and your heart to another dog that needs love and care.
We have to admit, the first dogs we ever fostered were here at Swamp Haven. We thought it would just be too hard to say goodbye. Sure, we’ve kept a few along the way, but we know that fostering is a temporary way to create long-lasting benefits for your family and for the dogs that you care for.
One concern that we hear often is that potential foster dog parents are nervous that they’ll be going through the process alone. Rest assured, Swamp Haven will be there every step of the way. We form lasting relationships with every dog and foster dog parent we meet. We will provide you with everything you need from the crate, food and toys to preventative flea medicine, a listening ear and, if need be, a shoulder to cry on.

A wonderful Rescue with lots of heart. As a foster, all of my needs were met and my questions were answered. Veterinary care, medicine given promptly when needed, and supplies provided from food to crates to play toys! There is no doubt that Swamp Haven Rescue puts the welfare of the dogs above all else…thanks to Lindsey and Alyssa.Sharon
