What is Berg Foster Life
501c3 EIN 87-1555598
After several years of working with other rescues in the Houston area as well as across the US, in July of 2021 we officially opened Berg Foster Life. The original idea was to be a middle place for dogs that were getting ready to transfer to rescues in places that had a greater demand for dogs than dogs available for adoption. We quickly learned that there were more dogs in need here in Houston than we could transfer out and the medical expenses of getting them ready for adoption weren’t easily sustainable. We then decided to adopt some dogs out locally to help us provide the medical expenses for transport dogs as well as provide community outreach that is much needed in this area. It also allowed us to intake dogs regardless of heartworm status since we can now provide the costly treatment for these dogs and adopt them locally if we are unable to transport them due to heartworm status. We also recognize that while this area is a tough place for dogs, there are still many wonderful adopters that should have the chance to adopt a loving family member. In our first year we saved over 500 dogs and a few cats, and are looking forward to continuing our mission. We couldn’t continue to do what we do without the support of our adopters, partner rescues and shelters, donors, fosters, and amazing team members.
