Foster Plea PercyB.O.N.E.S. is urgently looking foster homes throughout New England to take care of all the dogs that we are being asked to take into our program. It is becoming increasingly difficult to meet this demand which has been spurred by family relocation, job loss, tighter personal budgets and competing needs brought on by economic instability and financial uncertainty. We have very reliable foster homes but they aren't enough to meet the demand that is being placed on us.

Foster Plea HeidiEach day as I look at the long list of dogs in our program, I am thankful for our organization's dedicated, knowledgeable foster families. They are the integral link between intake and adoption. When it comes to reasons people foster they vary from person to person As one volunteer put it, "I am so happy when my foster fills a void in the life of an older adopter". Another said, "I think they {the dogs} deserve a chance to be someone's pet". For me it is the reminder that physical and behavioral obstacles to adoption are overcome resulting in a well-adjusted dog.

Foster Plea AnnieWithout more foster homes we will rescue fewer beagles forcing them to outlive their stays in overcrowded, financially strapped shelters. Being the largest beagle rescue group in New England means that the dependence on us to rescue, and eventually re-home beagles continues to grow.

If you are interested in fostering and are not yet a B.O.N.E.S. volunteer, please review and complete the volunteer application.

If you are already a volunteer, please go to the volunteer website and fill out the foster home application.

Thank you from all the beagles!!
