Foster a Hand-me-down Dog!

Why is  Fostering Important? 

We are a foster based rescue, and without fosters we are nothing. We rely on our community and communities support to be able to save these dogs. We would love to be able to help more dogs, but without fosters and support, we have a limit of how many dogs we can rescue. By fostering animals for a short but necessary period of time, foster families provide more room for the rescue, allowing us to help other dog in need. 

If you have never fostered before and have questions, please don't be afraid to ask! All expenses are paid for (crate, food, vet bills, etc.) all we ask is you open you home to a dog in need until they find their forever home.   

Dogs Needing Foster Homes


9 month old, Queensland Mix. Friendly with other dogs. Not sure about cats. Has a fracture on front left foot, so needs to take it easy for a couple weeks. A foster with medical experience would be the best suited, but not necessary.
