Why Foster?

Getting our puppies off to the right start to become a service dog is one of the most important stages of our program.

𝐅𝐮𝐥𝐥-𝐓𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐅𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬 are dedicated individuals and families that can help with the first 10 months of the puppy's life. They will need to provide a loving home, public socialization, and begin the basic training process.

We are also looking for individuals to 𝐖𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐅𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫 dogs who are in Stages 2 and 3 of training. They are typically 1-2 years of age and reside at our facility. These dogs have weekend visits with fosters, Friday through Sunday, according to the foster's schedule and availability.

We are also looking for individuals to 𝐇𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐅𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫 dogs who are in Stages 2 and 3 of training. A dog would stay in the home over the long holiday weekend! They are typically 1-2 years of age and reside at our facility full-time.

Experts from Retrieving Freedom will be there to help throughout the entire process with training classes and open communication. Being a foster home will be one of the most rewarding experiences that you and your family will ever be a part of.

For more information, email [email protected] or call one of our offices: 319-505-5949 (Iowa) or 660-586-2055 (Missouri).
