"Doesn't cost you a dime, Just your love and some time."

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:

  1. Read the information below

  2. Fill out an application

  3. 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.

  • Socialization

  • 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!

Minimum Requirements

You must live in Colorado and be able to drive to Denver as needed.

Foster Homes are required by law to have in person home checks.  Therefore, we are unable to have fosters in remote areas of Colorado or out of state.  Please keep in mind that as an all volunteer group, we have to be able to drive to you! 

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.
