Wish Bone offers a variety of volunteer opportunities such as event planning, dog walking, community outreach,  data entry,

fundraising, grant writing, grooming & bathing, and marketing.

Dogs who may otherwise be destroyed at an overcrowded shelter are temporarily placed with you, their foster family, until a forever family is found. As the foster parent, you are never under any obligation. You may return your foster pet to us any time, for any reason. You may foster a pet once a year or once a week.

Wish Bone Canine Rescue's mission is based on Nathan Winograd's No Kill Philosophy, which states that all healthy and treatable homeless animals have the right to live.  Only animals that are too sick, irremediably suffering or too injured to be rehabilitated, or animals that are too vicious with a poor prognosis for rehabilitation and as such cannot be adopted into homes, should be euthanized.

Check your dog’s paws frequently for signs of cold-weather injury or damage, such as cracked paw pads or bleeding. During a walk, a sudden lameness may be due to an injury or may be due to ice accumulation between his/her toes. You may be able to reduce the chance of iceball accumulation by clipping the hair between your dog’s toes.
