Steps to Becoming a Foster
Ho-Bo Care is always in need of foster homes! These dogs simply need a place to "crash" while forever homes are found for them. Fostering can be anywhere from a few days to a few months.
Foster homes go through the same interview and review
process as potential adopters:

Fill out an application
A volunteer will contact you to set up an in-person home visit
and discuss the fostering process
Aside from daily care (feeding, grooming, exercise), the typical
responsibilities of a foster home include:
Helping the dog brush up on basic training skills
Help correct problems such as jumping, chewing, etc.
Providing playtime and attention
Fostering a dog may seem like a daunting task, but it is a great
way to assist a rescue group. The boxer doesn't have to be
kenneled while waiting for their forever home, which saves
Ho-Bo Care a huge expense, and the new owners get a dog who
is better adapted to home life, and therefore has a better chance
of remaining in the new home permanently.
Fostering is a way to help a boxer who really needs a helping hand. It can be stressful; it requires dedication, hard work, serious time commitments and most of all understanding that everything won't always be smooth sailing, but that you are making a difference in a dog's chance at a better life!
You must live in Colorado and be able to drive to Denver as needed.
In-person home visits are required for fosters prior to fostering and annually after.
All pets that live in the home must be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Because most of the dogs come from shelters with unknown vaccine history, Rabies, DHPP, and Bordatella are strongly recommended for your current pets.
All other pets in your home must be indoor pets.
You must agree to keep Ho-Bo Care updated with your foster dogs progress with notes and pictures to help them get adopted.
