NOTE:  Due to the CORIV-19 epidemic, we have temporarily suspended adoptions to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers and our dogs. We were able to get a few dogs to their furever homes just before the suspension went into place.   We will continue to accept and process adoption applications so we can place dogs as quickly as possible when it becomes safe to do so.   We are also actively seeking new foster families at this time as, sadly, we anticipate an increase in dogs needing to find new homes. 


THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN FOSTERING!  We can only rescue as many dogs as we have foster homes!

  • We provide basic supplies, veterinary care, and guidance.
  • You provide the love, training and home.
  • The dog provides you with love, joy, and the satisfaction of having saved a life.

Foster care consists of providing a safe, loving, temporary home for a dog until a permanent adoptive home can be found. All dogs are screened for health and temperament before entering our program.

Aside from regular day-to-day care (feeding, grooming, exercise), the responsibilities of a foster home may include basic training (housetraining, walking on leash, sit, down); behavior modification (to correct problems such as jumping, mouthing, barking, destructive chewing, dashing through doors); socialization and temperament evaluation (to determine whether the dog is good with different types of people and other animals); medical care (dispensing medication, taking the dog to vet appointments), and of course plenty of playtime and snuggling.

Fostering a dog may seem like a formidable task, but it’s a very tangible way to make a difference.  Everyone benefits!   As a foster volunteer you get to spend time with a special dog, and you have saved a life many times by providing a loving environment for a rescue.
