Fostering with Retrieving Freedom

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 (puppy raisers) are dedicated individuals and families who help with the first 8-10 months of the puppy's life and training. They will provide a loving home, public socialization, and begin the basic training process.

  

We are also looking for individuals to 𝐖𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐅𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫 service dogs in training who are in Stages 2 and 3 of training. Residing at our facility, these dogs are typically between 1 and 2 years of age, and they venture into weekend foster homes Fridays through Sundays.

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.

If you are looking to learn more about fostering and want to participate in the introductory class, we welcome you to join us on Saturday, April 10 at 8:30AM, where you can then stay and observe current fosters at 10:00AM. This will be a tell-all class, where you'll go over the foster manual and learn about the different kinds of fostering: breeding, full-time, and weekend. Currently, the biggest need at the Iowa location is for breeding and full-time fosters - especially for the summer of 2021!
