A Place For Us - Bonnie's Foster Home For Dogs

A Place For Us provides a loving home environment for dogs (usually no more than four at a time) who have come from local shelters and who need to find permanent homes. Before arriving at Bonnie's house in South Egremont, MA, dogs are spayed or neutered (if they've not already been fixed) and given all necessary vaccinations, including kennel cough.
