What is a forever foster home?

What is a forever foster home?

Myrtle has an update to share

She was up for adoption, but we got some news that her most recent lab work shows that she is in early-stage Kidney failure. Don’t feel bad for Myrtle, she is so grateful that she was rescued and got her teeth cleaned up and her cancerous tumor removed!

We talked it over with her and came to the conclusion that it would probably be best if she stays in our forever foster program so she can get the care she needs for the remainder of her days. She knows how tough things are out there now for a lot of people financially and we told her we have the best supporters that will make sure she gets the care she needs.

So, now instead of looking for an adopter, we are looking for a forever foster home! What is that you may wonder? This is where you take the dog into your home for their remaining time and the rescue pays the bills! This sounds awesome right? It is, but you need to remember you are taking on a senior dog that will need extra care, so you need to be up to the challenge!

  • While we prefer the Portland area, we will consider other areas as long as you have easy access to a vet and vet specialty care.
  • Have a vehicle and be willing to take Myrtle to vet appointments.
  • You must love senior dogs and have senior dog experience & we have a preference for anyone who is familiar with dogs with kidney failure.
  • Myrtle loves other calm dogs and she would love one or two that like to snuggle up and nap throughout the day!
  • Someone that understands that accidents happen and be ok with that! Myrtle tries but you know some days are better than others!

If you feel you meet the following qualifications and want to be considered to be Myrtle’s forever home then please reach out to us adoptions@pacificpugrescue.org.
