Do you have a heart for saving animals and a little extra space in your home to help a pup in need?

Please sign up to be on our foster team here: Wish Bone Fosters


Our foster program allows WBCR to rescue dogs who might otherwise be euthanized in overcrowded shelters and place them in the safety and comfort of a home environment.

Life in a shelter can be stressful for many dogs, and the overcrowding many shelters experience make it difficult to provide individual attention to the dogs.  When rescue dogs are placed in foster they are able to relax and enjoy life in a temporary home while waiting for their forever homes.  Foster families are able to observe dogs in a home environment and provide information to adopters on the dog's personality, habits and needs.  Fosters can work on basic good manners' training or other issues that will help the dogs become more adoptable.


Anyone can become a foster for WBCR.  We welcome fosters with children and other pets.  We require that all pets living in the foster home be up to date on all vaccinations.  You must reside within 60 minutes from Bloomington/Normal in case of an emergency and your foster dog may need to see our veterinarian.  If you meet these requirements, we'd love to have you foster for us!
