We foster dogs through Operation Paws for Homes (OPH). OPH is a network of foster homes throughout parts of Virginia, Maryland, and Southern Pennsylvania. These really cool people rescue dogs from high kill shelters in North and South Carolina, plus Turks & Caicos (really!) and even Afghanistan!
Prior to adoption, all dogs are microchipped, neutered, given heartworm, flea & tick preventatives, and updated on their shots. One of the truly unique things about adopting a dog from a foster home is that the foster family has had a chance to get to know what the dog is like in a home setting. They can tell the adopter about the dog’s habits, quirks, likes and dislikes which helps to make a better fit for both the dog and the adopter. If you’d like more information on adopting a dog, fostering, volunteering, or being an awesome financial supporter, check out OPHrescue.org.
