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.

Meet Dusty!

Goofy Dusty is a young teen lab/shep mix who was rescued from the streets of Tijuana by a good sam after she saw a car run over his front leg. She took him to a local TJ vet clinic for treatment as he had a very serious injury. She was taking good care of Dusty and helped him recover. After a month she started to contact rescues seeking assistance to help with his adoption and we took Dusty in. 

We realized he has an abnormal right front leg from the hit by car which turned out to leave him with a abnormal paw from multiple fractures to his paw. We are waiting to take him to a specialist to see if he recommends surgery to repari, amputation, or nothing to be done. We will know in mid September of what his future holds. For now, we can say this guy is a HAPPY BOY. Nothing stops him and he is VERY energetic; we are confident he has no pain from his bad leg. He runs, goes up/down stairs, and his leg doesn't seem to hold him back to play with his pup pals. 

Dusty is great with people, very silly and outgoing. Has not been tested aroudn children and cats, but he likely would do very well with both. 

He is a fairly small lab only in the mid 30 pounds and likely won't grow above 40lbs. We would love to find him a foster family or adopter as he is currently in a kennel setting. He is learning leash walking and crate training. 

If you'd like to meet him please submit an application online @arwob.org.
