Look Back Border Collie Rescue, Inc.

Foster Families

The Ultimate Volunteers

Thank you for considering fostering for LookBackRescue.  Dogs in our rescue have mostly come to us from overburdened shelters.  We often have little reliable information about their behavior in a home environment.  Such dogs will first be placed in primary foster homes for quarantine and initial assessment. After an initial assessment period of 2-4 weeks, we attempt to match dogs to appropriate supporting foster homes.

Each foster’s needs will be unique and you will have an experienced foster guide to rely upon for questions and support.  We work as a team.  If for any reason the foster does not work out for your home, we will arrange the dog’s return as quickly as possible.

Part of what we love about the breed is that every dog is so unique. We respect and honor that every foster home will also be unique. The greatest dog for one home can be the worst nightmare for another home.  It is all about the right fit.  So, we ask you to please have patience with our process and try to share as much information as you can about your home environment and your goals in fostering a Border Collie.  We will do our best to match you with a dog to foster and guide appropriate to your home environment and fostering goals.

The first step is to complete the application, read our guidelines, and read the fostering agreement.  Links to these materials in both pdf and word formats follow:


Make it ALL Possible

Whether it is just a few hours helping out or fostering, we need you.  Even telling your friends about us and sharing our website and Facebook page helps.  The more traffic to Facebook and our website, the greater the chances of our dogs being found by Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.  So, please help us get the word out.
