Great Dog Rescue New England (GDRNE) is a shelterless rescue group and our mission is to save lives. This is made possible by a network of incredible foster families who open their hearts and homes to care for our rescues. There are always animals in need and together we are able to give loving dogs a chance to find their forever homes.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about fostering.

Helping to find homes for loving animals in need of shelter and love has bonded our family together and been an amazing lesson for our son. We know that he will take the experiences of charity, responsibility and sacrifice in his heart and mind as he grows into an adult we can be very proud of.

I fostered my first dog back in 2013 and since then, I have found my purpose. I foster dogs because I want to help dogs move on from their past experiences, and to get them started on their new journey. Fostering dogs has taught my family and I what It means to be selfless and that all dogs deserve a second chance at a better life.
