At a time when we are seeing so many more senior bichons abandoned by their original families, we are so very grateful that we have a community that cares about them – and helps us to make a difference.
Launched in January 2010, Bichon FurKids Forever Foster program had a vision: to make it possible to care for those bichons who, because of health, temperament, age or background, might not be good candidates for adoption. We felt strongly then, and now, that despite their special needs, whatever they might be, these dogs deserve to live out their lives in loving homes, being cared for with respect and dignity.
The dogs accepted into the Forever Foster Program are very special pups. Some have chronic health problems which require an unusual amount of care and expense; some are severely disabled; others are elderly or have terminal medical conditions. Euthanasia is not an option for these dogs unless their quality of life is compromised. Instead, their medical expenses are covered by Bichon FurKids while their foster moms and dad provide the physical care and love they need and deserve.
Initially funded by a generous five-year donation from an adopter and bichon-lover, BFK established a separate Fund to address the needs of those pups in our Forever Foster program. Currently there are five bichons in our program and we’d like to introduce you to our current forever fosters.
2020 has been a difficult year on so many levels for so many people and pups! Although we have these five deserving pups in our Forever Foster Program, there are three others who are currently in foster homes and need to become forever fosters. They are precious little souls who deserve to live out their days, months and years in loving homes and we need your help to help them.
To provide the best life possible for all our Forever Fosters, we need donations. There are several ways that you can help one of these pups – or one of the ones waiting to be designated a Forever Foster. You might consider becoming a Sponsor. Sponsorships can be one time donations or timed payments to help cover the costs of medical care, treatment or recovery. All monetary and material donations can be designated to go to a particular Forever Foster or the program itself
