Foster Application

Foster homes are crucial to our rescue group, thanks for helping!

We need foster homes in the Plattsburgh, NY area, all of Vermont, New Hampshire and Western Maine (South or West of Augusta). If you want to assist us in short term foster or long term foster care, complete and send us this form. 

GMPR does not have a "shelter". All of our surrenders go directly to an approved and inspected foster home where they will receive any medical care necessary and lots of love and support. Being a foster parent is challenging. A foster parent is the one who will get the pug(s) ready for their new homes.

Many of our rescue pugs come to us with health issues, some minor, some major. GMPR will cover approved costs of caring for your foster pugs, including veterinarian expenses and food. Many of our foster homes do decide to provide their own food for their fostered pugs as part of their support to GMPR.

We are always in need of loving, caring, committed foster homes. Our ability to rescue depends greatly on having fosters who will answer the call when needed. Fostering is a huge, but rewarding responsibility. Please volunteer if you are ready for that committment.
