Want to truly make a difference in the life of a shelter dog?

Rex SMALLJoin our Behavior Modification Foster Program (B-Mod Program). We are looking for dedicated individuals who are willing to not only open their heart but also their home to help adoptable dogs thrive and become the best friend they are meant to be to a potential family.

Some dogs feel stressed from being in the shelter environment, especially when their stay with us has exceeded over 100 days. Even with the help of volunteers and staff these dogs are not receiving all the individual attention they require due to having a large influx of dogs in our care.

We are reaching out to people in our community to help foster these adoptable dogs and help with positive behavior modification. Training classes will be a requirement at No Monkey Business Dog Training with Helen Nicholls, located in Concord.  Attendance will be one hour, once a week with the foster dog in your care.  Adoptable dogs have thrived in a foster home just by receiving the one on one attention and also their stress level was significantly lower.

The time frame for fostering an adoptable dog can vary with a maximum of eight weeks. The staff of the Pope Memorial SPCA, Helen Nicholls and the foster family would all work together so the foster program is as successful as possible.  It will be the request of the Pope Memorial SPCA to ask the new adopting family to continue training at No Monkey Business Dog Training to ensure the transition to their new family is successful and help strengthen the bond with that family too.

Should you wish to help make a difference by becoming part of our Behavior Modification Foster Program please contact Cathy Emerson at or call 603-856-8756 x222.
