About the Program

Bed Bath & Biscuit has teamed up with Montgomery County Animal Shelter and The Heartworm Foundation, in hopes to find homes for dogs that are overlooked.We have created a Board & Train Adoption Program, where 1 to 2 dogs per month will complete a three-week board & train at Bed Bath & Biscuit. We hope this will not only increase their chance of adoption but to ensure their success as a family member!

Interested in adopting? We encourage you to stop by to meet the dogs we’re working with! Each dog adopted through this program will be sent home with the necessary tools and information to help keep training on track.

Pet of the Month

Meet Ava!

Ava’s Board & Train Program Dates: 2/5/2020 – 2/26/2020

Ava is an 8-year-old rottweiler mix. She is spayed and up to date on vaccines.

Ava was adopted in 2016 but sadly she ended up on the streets and returned to the shelter. Her sweet demeanor made her a favorite amongst shelter volunteers. She is gentle and loving, and already knows her basic commands.

Success Stories

Dobe was the first Board & Train in our Adoption Program. Our staff fell in love with him, so we were so excited to see him find his forever home on September 29, 2019! He is enjoying life with his new owners and older sister (a chihuahua!), and loves having a big yard to play in!

When Colin first started his Board & Train at Bed Bath & Biscuit, the main focus was to help him build confidence and overcome the fears he developed over months of living on the streets. We enjoyed watching him come out of his shell and start playing like a puppy again. He is now living with a family he trusts, and enjoys playing with his fur siblings!

Momma, our third candidate, was much like Colin. She was also timid and did not like human interaction. Momma was about 5 years old and had been in the shelter for 7 months. She had a history of enduring abuse and being overbred. After entering the Board & Train program, Momma adapted soon with the help of another dog. Joe was successful with getting Momma adopted by a lovely family that had another shelter dog. Momma is now relaxing at home with her new forever family!
