Words of deep appreciation go to you wonderful people who have offered to share your home with a Rescue Old English Sheepdog. Dixie OESR, Inc. can and will be providing any necessary medical care for the Rescue OES in your care. The one thing that we can not give and you can is the daily love and caring that our beloved breed needs so much, especially those who may have had a "rough" time in life. Your input about the Rescue dog that you care for is essential in helping us find the right placement for the dog, and we appreciate and value your opinion with regard to this.
We will try to screen dogs well before placing them in Foster Care, but some behaviors may not show up in the kennel situation they may come from. At times the lack of knowledge about a particular Rescue Dog requires that he/she be placed in Foster Care to enable us to know the dog better and to determine the best placement for that dog.
We realize that having a Rescue OES in your home is a major responsibility for you, and we will try to help make it a pleasant experience. Please contact us if you have any questions. We hope that the placement in your home will be a short one, but if at any time you find it to be too much, just contact the Hotline (781-259-8173).
Again, we want to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for this unselfish act of sharing your love and home with a Rescue Old English Sheepdog.
The following guidelines have been established to help you to understand what role is expected of a Foster Home.
No dog can be released until you have a signed and witnessed Indemnity Agreement and the minimum donation of $200.
Veterinary Care. When medical care is required for a Rescue dog, the Placement Coordinator should be notified, or a message may be left on the answering machine (781-259-8173); someone will return your call. All bills should be approved by the Placement Coordinator before the procedure is undertaken. Prompt care for the dog with a minimum of stress for the Foster Family is our goal. If a Rescue dog should develop a contagious illness, he/she will be removed to a veterinary facility to protect him/her as well as your own pets.
All necessary medicines including heartworm pills will be provided and paid for by Dixie OESR, Inc.
Dixie OESR, Inc. will pay any food bills when submitted to the Secretary.
