In the short-term, BHS has to find ways to care for the little refugees. BHS does not have funding to afford to board these dogs or enough foster homes. That means a need for extra crates and exercise pens or portable kennels.
Once the short-term needs are met the re-building will start. The concrete foundation and septic system survived intact so the building can be reconstructed where it was, just as soon as the funding is in place.
There's so much in today's world that is wrong and it seems we can do nothing about it. The current situation at BHS is an emergency we CAN do something about.
Here's a little simple math for you to calculate: if you donate $10 and you ask ten friends who also donate ten dollars, and they each ask ten friends, and so on for just ten "generations," how soon can we rebuild the kennel? In no time at all!!!
Even those of us who are not wealthy can probably spare a few dollars - just look under the sofa cushion or car seats and you'll probably find a bunch of spare money you didn't know you had. Skip that mocha twice this week, or skip that stop at McDonald's once. . . there's a ten dollar bill in your budget that can be put to a very good cause.

|Fostering for Beebe Humane Society
Fostering is wonderful, and even though it's hard to let your foster dog go, it's so worth it to see a delighted family and a happy dog and know that you really helped an animal get a wonderful home.
A foster home is a short-term safe haven for a rescued dog. It is the most crucial yet scarce ingredient in canine rescue. The more available foster homes, the more dogs we are able to rescue. Below are the answers to some of the more common questions asked about fostering.
What do you mean by "foster"?
Temporary homes are needed for rescued dogs until permanent homes can be found. Temporary homes are called foster homes. We do not have a facility as of right now so dogs kept at the "humane society" have to stay in outdoor runs, and little ones are brought into crates at night as space allows.
What will be expected of me as a foster home?
Mostly, they just need love and attention. Some will need help with house breaking and crate training. If you want to start basic obedience training the dog, that would be great, but it's certainly not required. Your current dogs will help with training, too. Believe it or not--dogs learn a lot just by observing. The first few days, the foster can mainly hang out and learn how your family does things. Some dogs require special care, such as post medical attention, increasing weight or strength, socializing, building trust. Some dogs just require you.
We do ask that you bring the dog to any necessary vet appointments (all medical expenses are paid for by the Humane Society) and to at least 1-2 adoption events per month. We love when our foster homes send us bios on the dogs they are fostering.. after all you know the dog better than anyone.
How long does a dog stay in foster care?
Foster dogs can be in foster care as little as a week and sometimes it takes several months to find the right home. We do not adopt out on a first come/first serve basis. We strive to find the best home for our dogs, and therefore do not approve every application.
May I adopt my foster dog?
The Beebe Humane Society does not encourage or expect you to adopt your foster dog. We also recognize the realities of fostering, including the fact that foster families can fall in love with their foster dogs. Therefore, foster homes always have first right of adoption if they do fall in love and can't let their dog go. They also have significant say in the home their foster dog goes to, as they know the dog best and what environment it will flourish in.
May I choose which dogs I foster?
We will call you or set up a visit at the Humane Society and discuss and introduce any potential dog we're thinking of for you. You may certainly set limits on the kinds of dogs you foster. If you are asked to foster a dog that doesn't seem right for you, you can decline. If any foster dog you've accepted proves too difficult to handle, s/he can be placed elsewhere.
Will I become attached to the dog?
Yes, but when you meet the people who will provide a permanent loving home for the dog you've helped rescue, you will feel immense satisfaction to see them move on to their new and better life. If you choose you will then be able to foster another dog.
How much does it cost to foster a dog?
Just a lot of love! If you can provide the food for your foster dog, that is wonderful. However the Humane Society will be happy to provide food. We will also pay for all medical expenses at our vet and provide you with any needed medicines, including basic Heartworm prevention.
