Today is #nationalchangeapetslife. For the past few weeks, we have been posting dogs that have been in foster through CFP the longest. Our longest foster has been with us for 347 days – nearly 50 weeks. We commend our fosters for being so dedicated and sticking by their foster dogs’ side no matter how long it takes. There is a perfect family out there for every dog, it just takes time!
What is it like to foster with CFP?
Fostering is not easy, but the reward is AMAZING. The dogs we get often need some extra work, some have never been inside, some have never had the touch of a person and some are fantastic right from the start.
CFP has a thorough intake process – we want to be sure we get dogs that are good with other dogs and people. We always want to make sure we match the dogs with the best foster for them.
As a foster, you provide love, basic training, get them ready for adoption and share with the rescue the millions of adorable pictures you take! 📷 CFP covers all medical needs for the dog, supplies if needed and support through the whole process. The process kicks off with a phone conversation to be sure everyone is aligned and following that is a series of emails that walk you through the foster process, providing guidance, tips, and tricks. We have behind the scenes training support and support from other fosters. We are a community, always here to help!
We have been featuring the Kids of CFP – which are testimonials straight from the kiddos, sharing their experience of fostering! It’s great to see how much the kids love it, and how much they truly learn. We often get feedback from those considering fostering that they fear getting “too attached” – completely understandable but take a moment to understand the true impact you are making on a dog’s life (and the kids). Be open-minded, have honest conversations with your family members and yourself. Understand what you are doing when you foster - you are loving a dog and assisting with the search for their perfect home – how rewarding!
We love seeing family generations of fosters - we have many families that have all the generations fostering - it’s incredible to see!
Consider helping an animal this year, give fostering a try. We cannot pull dogs from the shelter unless we have a committed foster. When you commit – you are saving a life! 🐶💚

Introducing Buzz, the live wire pup. He moves with excitement and rarely stops even when he's resting his eyes. This boy has a lot of joy and he's looking for a special family to share it. Buzz wants to be where the people are - in fact, he's all too happy to revel in rubs and compliments from anyone willing to come say hi to him.
Buzz is a 3-year-old, hound/mastiff mix. He is a large puppy with little in the way of training so his family will need patience. He walks into his crate with little ado, but he would much sooner spend all day with you. He's working on leash manners, learning that 'outside' is for potty breaks, and getting more familiar with the "Sit" command each day. A fenced-in yard is recommended for Buzz.
Buzz is a funny boy and he loves to play - balls, stuffed squeaky toys, ropes, even just sticks in the yard. Buzz probably sees himself as a gentle giant, but his love of play turns him into more of a bull in a china shop. That same love of play is also an excellent training tool!
Buzz would flourish with an active family that will have lots of time for him. This is the type of dog that would do well in public places (did we mention he loves everyone?) and on adventures small and large to the great outdoors. Are you the perfect family to take Buzz to infinity and beyond?
