new text Not all Fospice dogs are seniors. Sadly, younger dogs and pups sometimes qualify if they have been diagnosed with a terminal condition like renal failure, heart disease or certain cancers. Depending on the diagnosis, a Fospice dog may have a matter of weeks, months, and just like humans, canine patients can beat the odds and go on to live far longer than expected.
Obviously, these pets do not know that their time is limited - but what they do know is they are happy every day they are in your loving home. The benefits for these animals in terms of comfort, stress reduction, and happiness is immeasurable. Moreover, the overwhelming majority of people who provide Fospice care benefit as well - simply because they realize the importance of the gift they are giving to these dogs.
We are always looking for special foster parents who are willing to give extra snuggles, endless treats, unlimited belly rubs, and never-ending ear scratches! We know people say "Oh, but I would just get too attached and the dog would die so soon". Well, there is no way to sugar coat it, but dogs do die and their time on this earth is too short. That said, any of us could kick off tomorrow and it goes for that cute puppy, too. Longevity is not guaranteed to anyone or anything. Learn to love the sweetness that comes with each day and rejoice in what you have. A Fospice dog can teach you that!
Like fostering, Fospice allows you to provide a loving home to a deserving dog without incurring the costs and long-term responsibilities of a traditional adoption. Food, medications, veterinary visits and all the other expenses of caring for a Fospice pooch are taken care of by From the Heart Rescue. Since the rescue covers all expenses, you are free to focus all your attention on spoiling your Fospice pup.
The difference between foster and Fospice is the outcome. Instead of preparing a pooch to head off to its forever home, you are providing priceless end-of-life care to a dog otherwise destined to pass away in a lonely cage. It is a unique and beautiful opportunity to show them a level of love and comfort they may never have experienced before. Please consider becoming a loving Fospice home. For some of our animals, this is the first AND last chance to experience finally having a family! If you can't foster, please consider donating to our Fospice Program dogs.
We are thrilled you want to volunteer with us. Our volunteers are the backbone of our rescue. We can't wait to introduce you to our organization and the team that makes it all happen. Please take a few minutes to read through the website. Learn our foster and adoption processes (no quizzes...we promise), and read the stories of the animals whose lives have been changed through Buzz Rescue Group. When you're ready, please fill out our VOLUNTEER APPLICATION!
Supplies and monetary donations are always appreciated. Check out this page for more information on ways to donate.
We participate in several events in the community. Join us! Help us get the word out about the events on social media, your work, church, school . . . anywhere you meet up with people. We often need help at these events. Let us know you're available to pitch in. add new text
Consider hosting a bake sale, organize a raffle . . . the options are endless. Contact us so we can help you get the resources you need to create an amazing event.
Share posts on social media. When friends and family are looking to add a pet to their family, send them to us.
When we bring in dogs, we often need help getting the dogs ready to go their foster homes.
We have foster families located in various cities across the United States. Sometimes we need volunteers to drive dogs to a "meet up" city to get dogs to their new foster homes.
Provide love, care, and a home for one (or more!) of our dogs until they are ready to find their family.
Instead of adopting through a breeder or pet store, adopt one of our amazing dogs. Your life will never be the same!
