Adore-a-Bull Needs Foster Families! for

Adore-a-Bull Rescue
3639 Coral Gables Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45248

FosteringAdore-A-Bull provides all supplies, food, and vetting for all fosters. All we ask of our foster homes is to provide a warm, loving home for them, work on basic obedience, and get them to vet appointments & adoption events. We realize you can’t make every appointment or event, so we will arrange transport if you can’t make it.**Before you fill out an application, please check into your local BSL laws. We have collected some here. Unfortunately we cannot place a pit bull type dog in a home with BSL, even if it’s temporary. **1. We need the applicant to fill out an foster application, click: Foster-Application.Updated 2. Once you complete the application, please email it to: [email protected]3. We will call you to talk to you about your application, your current pets (if you have any), get an idea on what type of foster you would be open to (puppy, adult, senior, special needs, Mother with puppies, etc) and answer any questions you may have about what fostering entails. Please give us some time to get back to you, we are all volunteers with full time jobs.4. If you have other animals (cats/dogs), it is our policy that they must be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and current on Flea/heartworm prevention. We will ask for your veterinarian’s contact information to do a reference check.*We do ask that you get your animals vaccinated for Bordatella every SIX months to fully protect your animals. Most vets do a one year.**5. If you are a renter, we must have expressed permission from your landlord to allow a bully breed dog in your home. If you live in an HOA, you must provide the bylaws for the community or we must receive expressed permission to allow bully breed dogs into your community.6. Once the above steps are complete, we do a home visit – this visit’s purpose is solely to verify what is on your application, look for hazards for puppies (we help puppy proof) or for the new dog, and get an idea of the environment the dog would be placed in. If you have other pets, we would like to meet them as well. We want to get to know their temperament, so we can find the right foster for your family.7. Once you are approved, we would move forward with finding you a foster – THANK YOU! Foster Expectations:We get a lot of questions on what we expect of our fosters. It’s very simple! We only ask that our fosters give our pups a warm loving home with lots of love, and that you bring the dog to our adoption events on Saturdays. They go from 11-4. We are all over the greater Cincinnati area. If you can’t be at every event, no worries – we will try to arrange transportation. We will provide food, crate and items they need as well as pay for any vet costs necessary.How long? The next question is usually how long do you need to foster? Unfortunately that really depends. We ask that you stay committed to keeping the dog/puppy until he/she is adopted. That could be one week or one year. We have found that the fosters who work with their pups in their training go the fastest.We can’t stress enough that we really, truly appreciate all of our adopters, fosters, and volunteers. We know the policies above might seem strict, but we have tweaked our process due to experience. Thank you!

Our organization purchased a building before the virus hit.We have held off any fundraising or announcement of the building because of the virus.At the same time, we do not have a great image to use.We would love the assistance of someone familiar with Sketch-Up and rendering plugins to help us create a more beautified version of our exterior. We have a model started but have not gotten far.It may be possible to create it on Photoshop from a photo, but we're not sure that will yield the best results.At this time, we just looking to do the following with the exterior:
  • Model enough to where we can get one single diagonal view showing the front and main side view of the building. No interiors or other exterior walls are necessarily needed at this time.
  • Add signage.
  • Add flattering lighting.
  • Add flattering landscaping.
It is a very simple rectangular building with a few rectangular windows. There is a handicap ramp, however, that we would like included, and an "awning."

ELDER PAWS™ is a forward-thinking, innovative program created by Angel’s Rest Animal Society – designed to enhance quality of life for the most neglected and disenfranchised segments of society: Seniors, Veterans, Disabled and the Homeless. If you find yourself longing for a furry companion, but feel you cannot afford the cost of care, please consider this incredible program from ELDER PAWS™. Through ELDER PAWS™, we match senior dogs and cats with those most in need of companionship and at risk of social isolation, who cannot afford a pet on their own.

Help an elderly person in your life with a loving animal while helping a good cause. 

The only requirement is that you provide a loving home!

 

Adopting your new lifelong forever animal can help to:

    • Lower blood pressure
    • Lower pulse rate
    • Enhance friendships and increase social opportunities
    • Ease depression
    • Give a sense of security
    • Ease loss of a loved one
    • Become more active
    • Want to take care of yourself, including grooming and bathing
     

    Read what the experts say about owning a pet!

Angel’s Rest assumes all costs and responsibility for the animal. That includes food, medical attention, security deposits, and other incidentals. Additionally, Elder Paws™ volunteers will make routine visits to check on the pet and its owner, to ensure that both are doing well in the relationship.

The proven benefits of pet ownership have been studied for many years. Medical professionals and numerous organizations recognize how owning a pet can be of tremendous benefit to your health.

 

Next Steps

Call or email us for a free consultation. That longtime dream of getting your very own pet may just be right around the corner! Love should not have to come with a big price tag!

We are anticipating that some groups will have to cancel during this uncertain time.To ensure that the people we serve will continue to receive dinner uninterrupted, we are asking interested groups, individuals, families, and business to consider signing up to provide a meal when needed.The meal can be prepared in our commercial sized kitchen or brought in ready to serve.The meal can also be dropped off in advance: earlier in the day, just prior to dinner or even the day before.Responsibilities:Provide dinner for 80 residents. At this time, we're just asking volunteers to provide the meal and drop it off at the shelter, and our residents will help to serve.We provide plates, napkins, cups, silverware, pitchers for ice water and any cooking utensils you might need.We recommend a hardy meal with a protein, a vegetable and one or two starch options. Our volunteer coordinator or our kitchen manager would be happy to give you recommendations.Another option would be to have dinner brought in or catered from one of our local restaurants.Procedures: If you are interested in helping out, or have more questions, please email Hannah Anderson, our Volunteer Coordinator at: [email protected]We will keep your name on our "emergency" list to contact when we have cancellations.

Flower Gardening for

The Grail
931 O’Bannonville Road, Loveland, Ohio 45140-9705

The Grail has several established flower beds--including a butterfly garden we plan to expand--across the property. Maintaining them does NOT require a Master Gardener certification, or even a "green thumb" just a desire to "dig in the dirt" and encourage beautiful things to grow. Weeding is the majority of the assignment time, but would include thinning, transplanting, and pruning. Best done early mornings or late afternoon to avoid heat of the day. Flexible scheduling available. Perfect for families!
