How You Can Help

Since adoption fees are considerably less than expenses per dog, we take a loss on every single dog we rescue.
GLBB can only continue to save homeless dogs with your support.

– Other Ways to Help –


As with most non-profit organizations, donations from the dog lovers in the general public are relied upon to help cover expenses and the cost of operating a rescue.

Donations made to GLBB are tax deductible.

If you are interested in helping us solicit donations from businesses, we can provide you with a form letter telling about our mission.

Please contact us!

Foster homes are the backbone of our organization!

Without dedicated foster families opening up their homes to these dogs and committing to the amount of time it takes to get their foster dog adopted, GLBB could not afford to add more dogs to our program.

Fostering a dog is one of most important gifts you can give to a rescue dog. Most of the dogs in our program have waited their whole lives to be in a loving home!

If you are interested in becoming a foster home for an GLBB dog, we ask that you fill out the adoption application. In the field that asks for the dog being applied for, please put “Foster” and your application will be forwarded to us. 

Please fill out our foster application

We screen our foster homes the same way we screen applicants because many of our foster homes become official adopters!!
