Fostering is a rewarding experience. As a foster BOBateer, you act as a temporary parent
for a homeless beagle. You provide the heart and home, we provide everything else. If you've ever thought about fostering
but have questions for us before sending in your application, drop us a line and we'll take it from there! Otherwise, you
can fill out a foster application at any time! The foster application can be found on our web site under Adopting/Fostering!
some circumstances, transportation is needed to get a rescue dog to us from another source. If you've got a car, this might
be up your alley! Click on link to Transporter Application above!
Perhaps, you're unable to make a full-time foster commitment to a homeless howler but would LOVE the opportunity
to baby-sit one for a foster parent! When our foster parents book a vacation or dream of a weekend getaway, we need someone
special to look after their foster beagle while they're away. On the other paw, there are instances when a rescued beagle
being transported to us from beyond may need an overnight stay with a trusted BOBateer somewhere along the route before making
the final leg to us in Toronto. Either circumstance is a great way to get your short-term beagle fix! If this BOBateer
category interests you, click on link to Beagle-Sitting Application above!
Sometimes, we receive rescue requests from shelters out-of-town. Our policy includes a Meet
& Greet to assess temperament with every beagle we're considering taking into our rescue but if they're not local to us,
it's not always easy to arrange a visit quickly.
The same predicament
arises when we receive great applications to foster or adopt our rescue beagles. Our policy includes a Home Visit but
if the applicant lives far away, we must find someone we know and trust to conduct that Home Visit on our behalf.
If you live outside of Toronto and would like to offer your assistance in these situations,
please let us know, click on link to Assessment/Home Visitor Application above!
As you may know, our BEAGLE BASH FOR
CASH is our annual signature fundraiser which is held towards the end of each year. It's our biggest
fundraising event which means the need for many BOBateers! We also receive invitations to hold booths at other dog rescue
and dog-related events throughout Ontario. Sometimes, it's not always possible for us to stretch ourselves enough to have
a public presence at all these great event opportunities. Promotion is such an important aspect of our work and it would be
nice to participate in as many events as we can throughout the year. If this type of BOBateering interests you, click

The Brainstorming BOBateer is a part of a Planning Committee for BOB. We've recently formed this
dynamic group to meet a few times each year and brainstorm on behalf of BOB. By bringing together beagle-loving people with
diverse backgrounds, interests and occupations, we stand to benefit greatly from their input leading to the implementation
of exciting new ideas on how to make our little beagle rescue the best little beagle rescue in the world! If you'd like
to join our Brainstorming Committee, send us an email!
