Adopt or Foster
If you are interested in being considered for fostering or adopting for Countryside, please start by completing this form HERE.
We will do our best to contact people for in person meet and greets in the order they are received. Please note that for some dogs ( especially puppies ) we receive hundreds of applications and it is our job to match pets with what we think will be the perfect forever home.
We have implemented a new program:
Foster 2 Adopt. This two week program
will give both you & your foster animal
time to get to know each other & see if it is
a compatible match. We will be checking
in with you after the first week, & are available for support through the entire process.
During these two weeks, we will work
with you to facilitate training sessions if necessary, assist with any necessary appointments for your rescue animal, and address any questions / concerns you may have.
At the culmination of these two weeks,
you may choose to formally adopt.
If you can't adopt but would like to support our rescue efforts, you may do so in the following ways:
OUR FEATURED FURIEND
Beau - Border Collie
Does your life need something new ?
Are you feeling a void ?
How about a new best friend ?
Introducing, BEAU !
This fun, loving guy would be the perfect working or sports dog. Beau is a 1.5 year old neutered, male Border Collie. He has a very high ball drive and a drive to train. Beau has been living with a certified professional dog trainer and behavior consultant for almost a year. He has a strong foundation training in obedience, rally, scent work (birch, anise and clove), agility and tricks. With the right partner Beau could excel in competition or a working home. Beau is great with other dogs and has never had any issues when playing with other dogs. He has lived with multiple dogs in the house. Like typical herding breeds, Beau believes all toys are his, and will guard toys / treats / food from the other dogs.
Not much is known about beaus puppyhood, he was dropped off in a crate in a rainstorm at the gates of the rescue. Beau has been adopted and returned 3 times and has not been able to find a home that listens and understands him. To help with his resource guarding he has learned the commands “leave it” and “drop it” and will also leave the room when told “go”. Beau is also fearful of new people, specifically men, and it takes him a few greeting to warm up to guests. Beau has learned a lot of skills to help him feel more confident, like handler focus, which makes him very easy to handle if you understand beaus communication and training he’s been taught. Because of beaus special behavior needs, he needs a home without children. He has lived with pet rats but has a very high prey drive and would not be successful in a home with cats.
Once he knows you and realizes he can trust someone, his true silly, happy, and loving personality emerges. In addition to being a pro during training, this goof ball is also a pro cuddler!
Beaus adoption fee has been waived and he comes with free training advice from his trainer/foster.
