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."

Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, & Sunday from 10AM-1PM we have a walk group at the shelter that takes all the available dogs on walks! There is a volunteer lead who pulls and puts dogs away so all you have to do is walk them around the neighborhood for about 20-30 minutes each. This is the only chance the dogs get out of their kennels so it's a great benefit for them to get this time out to walk and be loved on! Lots of our dogs at the shelter are somewhat on the strong side or energetic so being able to handle this would be a requirement to take part on the dog walking team. This is a great way to stay active and healthy while also helping out the homeless dogs of Hamilton County!
