Gloriana is a Belgian Sheep Dog born on September 21, 2006. She is a very sweet girl who gets along great with other dogs. She is also house/potty trained. Gloriana would be a wonderful addition to any family as she will aim to please and just wants to be your best friend.

Did you know at any given time roughly 70 percent of all the animals in our program are in foster homes? That is an incredible number made possible by people who care passionately about animals and believe in the NO KILL mission.

We work very hard to make fostering a positive experience for anyone willing to provide temporary care for one more animal. We accommodate special circumstances such as vacation-coverage, switch-out for unsuitable matches, short-term-only restrictions, breed-specific preferences and even "low-shed” or "housetrained-only" requests. We have dedicated Dog and Cat Foster Program Coordinators who are available even for late night emergency phone calls from foster parents. Read here for more details about fostering with us.

Do you want be a part of the most important aspect of NO KILL rescue? Give us the space to save ONE MORE LIFE by joining our Foster Program.
