We always need more foster homes. Fostering is essential to RPSM so we can continue saving dogs and keeping our rescue going. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can save. If you’re interested in becoming a foster family/foster parent, you’ll provide a temporary home for a newly rescued dog until they go to prison for their training in Coldwater, MI. This is usually a few weeks so the foster home can bond and learn more about the dog. All cost of supplies for our furkids while they are housed in foster homes is paid for by RPSM. We carefully match up foster dogs with foster parents based on what works for your household.
Once you’ve made your decision to join our growing family of foster “parents” all you’ll need to do is fill out our Foster Survey so we can match you with the best dog possible.
Volunteers of Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan are our most important asset. Each day our volunteers help in saving an unwanted rescued dog’s life. We have many rewarding opportunities available, be it short term fostering; fundraising, grant research, public relations, and more. Volunteering can mean just having a computer, some extra time, and a passion to save an animals life. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at RPSM please contact us!
