A key component of AGaG is our foster homes. Without them, we would not be able to operate the way we do and have dogs placed with loving families temporarily until a permanent home can be found. Without adequate numbers of foster homes, we are limited in how many Goldens we can take in at one time. Our foster homes provide information about habits and behavior in daily life so that we can provide as much information as possible to the adoptive family.
Foster families are not expected to incur any medical costs for the golden in their home, but are asked to use vet facilities As Good as Gold has relationships/agreements with – except in emergency circumstances. We ask foster families to give the dogs a great deal of affection; feed the dogs a high quality dog food; and note the dog’s behaviors so that we can determine the best forever home for that dog. Foster placement could last a few days, a few weeks, or a few months.
