What is Fostering?
What does it mean to “foster” for a rescue group? It means you are opening up your heart and your home for a dog in need. In our case, you’d be a Freedom Home!
Most dogs in rescue don’t come with a known history — so as a foster, your patience in helping a dog become accustomed to its new world is critical. A quiet place to “decompress” is important – many dogs haven’t had a warm bed in a long time; some may never have enjoyed their own toy. Giving them time to learn they are safe is important before introducing them to your pets!
Freedom Ride Rescue will provide supplies (crates, food, bowls) and get the animal in for a vet visit (for a spay, neuter and/or vaccines); we’ll also provide flea and heartworm preventatives… and help you find the perfect home for your foster dog through on-line sites, social media, and adoption events. We need long-term Freedom Homes (which means from “Freedom Ride” until adoption) but we also need Relief Homes — to give our Freedom Homes shorter term help during vacations, work commitments — anytime they need some backup!
What We Do
We are proud to be the crazy dog lovers who skip out on work to transport dogs from all over the state to their excited fosters’ homes … who stay up late searching shelter pages for that next “Freedom Ride” potential …. who volunteer countless hours making rescue a reality!

Find A Home
We love, rehabilitate and nurse an unwanted, unloved animal until they prance away with their fur-ever person as they start their most life’s wonderful chapter: the one as a cherished pet.
