Fostering is good for everyone!


Fostering is great for the Dogs.

We want every MAGSR dog to be fostered. The poor kennel pups only get out for a walk on weekends. Foster dogs live in a home with a family, sometimes foster siblings, get out every day and experience what at real home is like. 

Fostering is great for the Fosters.

Having a guest and learning all about him or her is really fun.  Helping get your foster habituated to a home, training, playing, chilling together and, finally, matching them up with the perfect forever family, is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever know.

Fostering is great for Adopters.

Foster parents can tell adopters about their potential new family member's personality, their strengths and weaknesses.  Knowing what a dog is like make it so much easier to make sure each dog finds the right home.

Fostering is great for MAGSR

For every dog we bring into the rescue, even after the adoption fee, we spend nearly $1,000!

The average vet fees, including heartworm and flea/tick prevention, amount to approximately $250. If we have to kennel the dog for a month, that's another $750. Add in the dogs that come to us needing spay/neuter surgeries, or with health problems, or the dogs we don't place right away. Our average cost per dog last year was $1,300. Less the average adoption fee of $335 leaves MAGSR in the hole close to $1,000 for every dog. Fostering takes a huge bite out of that deficit.

How can you help? Two ways: 

  • First, open your heart and your home to a foster dog. We'll work closely with you to find the right dog for your specific situation (existing dog, cat, small children). Every dog in Foster saves the Rescue $750 each month.  Fill out a Foster Application here.
  • Second, if you can't foster a dog, please sponsor one. We have several plans to choose from.

Adoption. It's the single biggest way you can help a MAGSR dog


Adopting is a lifelong commitment that can change the life of a MAGSR dog. It will change your life too.

If you are ready to add a new family member and do all that it take to provide a safe, loving home to a dog in need, fill out an Adoption Application now.

The Pups need your help, any way you can give it.

MAGSR is an all-volunteer organization. Everything that happens for the dogs happens because someone gave their time and effort to their care.

There are so many ways you can help:

  • Walking dogs at the kennel
  • Administration
  • Transport
  • Social Media
  • Fund Raising
  • Events
  • Home Visits
  • Bookkeeping
  • and lots of other ways…

If you have time or talent to lend the dogs, please fill out a Volunteer Application and join the MAGSR Team!

You can help the Pups with a Gift of Food, Toys, Beds, whatever!

Who knew they'd need food every day? 

Well, they do. And toys to play with, and comfortable beds to sleep on, and flea and tick medication, and heartworm preventatives and, most of all, love.

Show your love by gifting the pups needed items from their Wishlists.  Visit any of these sites to see what they need and send your love along:
