Studies have shown that rescue dogs in foster homes do much better and have a more successful rehoming experience than those in shelter situations. We take our dogs' health and rehabilitation seriously so we only use fosters, not shelters. The more fosters we have, the more lives we can save. If you are interested in fostering with us, please read the requirements below as well as download and read our Foster Care Rules. If you feel that fostering with us would be a good fit, please fill an application form out
