Foster a Rescue

Fostering is
  FREE and FUN! 

We not only provide you with everything you need to take care of one of our rescues, but the experience is SO fulfilling. By placing one animal into a foster home, you allow us to save another. We are always in need of foster parents.

Thank you for choosing rescue!

We are a non-profit rescue organization and DO NOT own a shelter. Therefore, our pets stay in FOSTER HOMES. Animals that need one have a note in RED below their picture on their profile.
You can also browse a list of animals who need a foster home to find out which pets are searching for one below:

Meet Olive! Update 4-21-22 (from Olive’s foster family): Olive took a small break from being in our home due to my husband and I going out of town for a few weekends in a row, but we were very excited to have her back and continue to work with her and get her more socialized with dogs/cats/people. Upon arrival, I noticed she had made immens...

Meet Zeus! Zeus in a wonderful young adult dog who we would describe as a social, happy, outgoing, playful, and very handsome Baja Blend Mutt!  He was rescued from the streets of Ensenada, Mexico in November 2021 by a good Samaritan.  He was a typical Mexican mangy stray dog who was obviously not thriving.  He was weak, malnourished...

Meet Leyla!  UPDATE 5-22-22:  Here is the latest update from Leyla's foster family:"Leyla had a behavioral assessment on 5-5-22 and the trainer stated  “I do believe Leyla is dog aggressive and it is not solely about being on the leash or having a boundary frustration.” We have been working on counterconditioning and des...

Meet Ava! What can we say about Ava? Most definitely that she is the regal life of the party! She was rescued off the streets of Tijuana in late March as she was running away from other dogs.  She was probably running from them since they were all going to the same trash bin looking for food. Ava was almost hit by a car as she was darting...

Meet Buddy! Wow!  This little guy sure is HANDSOME!  This cutie has some amazing coloring, with different gray shades and some tan/black undertones.   We do not know what breed this little boy is except we do know he is a total MUTT from Baja Mexico, which means he is likely a medium sized breed.  Currently as of May 10th,...

Dog /Male
Meet Charlie! Charlie is an adorable Labrador mix, who was rescued along with his sister from an abandoned home where he had lived for the first 1.5 years of his life.  Sadly, his family had abandoned the siblings and left them in the yard.  A neighbor noticed them in the patio for a couple of days and decided to take action so they ...

Meet Corrine!

 UPDATE 10-2-21:  Here is what Corrine's foster mom has to say about her:"Corrine continues to sleep 22-23 hours a day, but when she’s awake, she is happy and waggy. Her schedule is very regular: sleep, do her business, drink water, eat, repeat. She has developed a bit of a senior puppy incontinence issue over the past...

Meet Oscar and Emmy! These two adorable siblings couldn’t look any more different!  They were rescued together from the streets of Ensenada in January and we think they are a Chihuahua/Lab/Terrier mix with some “potential” Poodle involved, but there it no way to be sure without a DNA test.  We do know that Oscar is a li...

Border Terrier / Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat)
Dog /Male
Meet Grizzly! This handsome and very sweet boy was rescued off the streets of Tijuana at the end of March.  He was just your typical street dog that was friendly with people and mingled about with other dogs looking for food, as he was a regular in his community.  A family fed him daily, but the family moved away and his resource for...

Meet The siblings Milly, Miny and Meny! Miny and Meny are being fostered together and are also great with other dogs and cats.  They would both likely be good with children as well.  These two siblings are 1/2 the size of Milly and are only 12-15 pounds, with more of a Terrier/Poodle coat.  They will likely reach 25-35 pounds when...
