Real Dog Rescue needs foster homes.

One truth about rescue is that the amount of families who choose to open their homes to a dog in need directly correlates with the number of dogs' lives that we can save. Fostering is the backbone of rescue. It literally gives you the opportunity to allow a dog to live. It allows a litter of puppies to grow up, it allows a senior dog to know the comfort of a soft bed, and it allows a neglected dog to know that human interaction means soft words, full bellies and safety. Most of the dogs we rescue, through no fault of their own, have ended up in a shelter; where the odds of them making it out alive are slim to none.

We know there are a ton of you out there who are on the fence about fostering.  For those of you who think you could never foster because you would fall in love them with them all, our response is a resounding “Of course you will!”.  If you are the type of person who is considering fostering, it's because you have a warm and loving heart. It only makes sense that you would fall in love.  Trust us, we fall in love with every single dog that comes into our homes. But we also know that love is endless. The small sting of sadness that we feel when a foster goes to its forever home is but a small price to pay to know that we were able to be a part of the dog’s journey to a better life.

There are so many dogs that we want to save, and in order to do so, we need your help. If you have ever considered becoming a foster, please give it a try now.  Fill out an application and we will give you a call.


Foster homes are provided with all of the necessary supplies to care for a foster dog during the length of its stay in foster care.  Real Dog Rescue will provide all necessary medical care to prepare the dog for adoption at one of our participating veterinary partners.  We will also provide, food, a crate, bedding, toys, etc. as needed.  

Foster homes will be partnered with an adoption coordinator to answer all of their questions and keep in touch regarding the progress of the foster dog, events, and possible applicants.
