Become a Foster Home

Ho-Bo Care is always in need of foster homes. These dogs simply need a place to "crash" while homes are found for them.


Steps to becoming a foster:

  1. Read the information below

  2. Fill out an application

  3. A volunteer will contact you to set up a home visit and discuss the fostering process 


Foster homes go through the same interview and review process as potential adopters. Fostering can be anywhere from a few days to a few months.

Aside from daily care (feeding, grooming, exercise), the 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!
