Twyla’s Friends does not have a shelter or Kennel facility and relies solely on foster homes. Dogs fostered in homes have the advantage that they are learning house manners and rules from their foster parents and in return, the foster parents get to know the dog very well and can make the best possible match for a new family, as they know what their particular foster dog needs, likes, doesn’t like and is afraid of.

Foster dogs live with the family as their own on a temporary basis until a new home is found = sometimes that goes quickly, sometimes that takes a little longer. While Foster parents provide the home environment and daily exercise, Twyla’s friends manage and pay for all the vetting. We can provide crates if needed, as well as available donated food.

We ask that:

  • Existing dogs in the home are up-to-date on Vaccinations (for their own protection)
  • All foster dogs are kept indoors as family pets until a permanent home is found
  • Foster families bring their dogs to adoption events and vetting appointments
  • And that foster families maintain regular communications with the group.

Twyla’s Friends will arrange for the vetting, the photographs and the online posting to help promote your foster to help him/her find a new family. We offer support and advice for any questions that may arise about the dog, assist with meetups, home visits, and adoption to make sure a good match is made not just for the dog, but also the family.

 Current Twyla Dogs looking for a foster:

 

Mr Bubbles

MrBubbles was returned to us when his handler became unable to handle him any longer due to the handlers medical issues. MrBubbles likes to challenge inexperienced handlers a bit but is fairly easily managable once he understands (and trusts) his handler and the rules of the house. Our trainer knows him well and will work with his new foster (or adopter). MrBubbles LOVES to snuggle once he learns to trust his new person, walks well on leash and is fully house trained. 

Supplies, food, medical and training assistance will be provided.

Pretzel

Pretzle is looking for a foster/adopter after her last placement didn't work out - she LOVES to play with other dogs and was overwhelming the resident dog. Pretzel is young and very active and seems to have boundless engergy, so a home with one (ore more) active dogs, kids and a handler who likes to run or bike with her would be great. Pretzel is house and crate trained, doesn't particularly like being left alone, but the old saying "a tired dog is a good dog" will work wonders for her.

 

Supplies, food, medical and training assistance will be provided.
