Furever Fosters

A 'Furever Foster' is a dog who, for medical and/or behavioural reasons, is not available for adoption and will remain in TLC's care indefinitely. They live in loving foster homes who are ready to cater to their every need as they would their own dog -- just like the rest of our foster dogs.
When it comes to our long-term residents, we need extra financial support to cover their veterinary needs. In general, the vetting costs for our adoptable dogs are offset by their adoption fees -- since Furever Fosters remain in our care indefinitely, we need your help to help get them the extra care they need.
Click on the button above to send us an email! You can purchase specific items OR make a general donation that will go towards their care. As these dogs are here 'furever,' we will also be looking to set up a monthly program to make sure your sponsor pup is always getting all they need!

4yo Mastiff X

Kyrie came to us as a behavioural furever foster after being bounced around a few shelters and homes.  She is a girl who likes consistency and needs a certain environment to thrive in, and her foster mom is learning about those details every day. Kyrie enjoys the company of her canine foster siblings but prefers above all else to be with her favourite humans! She can be leery of men and if not introduced appropriately, and can make poor decisions meeting dogs if not advocated for. With support from a trainer and consistent work from her foster mom, Kyrie has made huge steps in improving her behvaiours.

Kyrie also has a few medical concerns under her belt -- after seeing a specialist, we found out she had not only hip dysplasia but bilateral elbow dysplasia, too! These diagnoses were causing a lot of pain to the poor (only two years old!) girl in everyday life, with activities as simple as talking on hardwood floor and taking the stairs. After her surgery in the summer of 2018, she has gained more function and is able to go on walks much more comfortably... and more importantly, can play with her canine siblings! That being said, Ky is known to prefer snuggling up for a good movie more than anything else.

Kyrie’s Wish list:
- Donations to cover cost of surgery and behavioural modification training
- Donations for ongoing medical care (i.e. pain medication)
- XL Kong for daily mental stimulation (and yummy treats)
- Benko knuckle bones, her favourite treat!
