needs your help!
Did you adopt a beagle through NCARF and want to give
something back? Do you love beagles but can't have one?
may be thinking that the only help we need is foster
homes and that's not right for you (or you'd like to learn
more about it). Don't worry - there are plenty of other
ways that we need your help!
a regular basis, we need people to do the following:
dog foster parents. Being a foster parent
can be extremely rewarding.
Job Requirements: room in your home
for an extra dog, patience and some training knowledge
to work through housebreaking/re-housebreaking issues.
You must provide food, water and a warm place to sleep
for the dog. And love.
Do understand that foster dogs are not stuffed dogs
-- they are real dogs with some real issues that may
take some effort on your part to help them through.
Please do not volunteer to foster unless you are willing
to commit to fostering a dog for at least 2 weeks.
Often new foster dogs are scared and need some gentle
surroundings and a lot of love to come out of their
shell. Average foster time is generally around 1-2
weeks for younger, healthy dogs but can range anywhere
from 1 hour - 2 months. Often, we need emergency foster
homes for 1-2 nights while we find a longer-term placement
for a dog. If you aren't able to commit to long-term
foster care, consider being a foster doggie hotel
and helping out in short-term emergencies.
Because NCARF works closely with an all-breed rescue
group, we occasionally will take in other breeds of
dogs, usually hounds of some variety (Walker hounds,
basset hounds, etc...).
Drivers: You'd be surprised at how many rides
these little dogs need! Most of our foster homes work
full-time and need some help getting fosters to the
vet for exams or spay/neuter appointments. Most of
this driving is in the San Jose/Cupertino area, some
is also needed from Fremont-Santa Clara. No matter
where you live, NCARF has a job for you!
Drivers: Do you travel from Sacramento to
the Bay Area? Are you headed to Fresno? To Pleasanton?
If you have room for a beagle (or possibly another
breed of dog) to hitch a ride, please contact us.
Our foster homes always need food, collars, leashes,
crates, brushes, medication and other dog-related
products. If you have any of these things, new or
used, please consider donating them to NCARF.
