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.

UPDATE 5/22/20:

Here is the update we have received from his foster family:

"Beans" (as we've nicknamed him) has settled in nicely to the comforts of home life! He enjoys his daily routine of napping inside, napping outside in the sunshine, walks through the park, belly rubs and learning manners for jerky treats. He's fairly quiet and keeps to himself, but greatly appreciates snuggles & pets! Beans would do well in a relaxed environment with a family who will be gentle and shower him with all the pets he deserves! Some other things we've learned about him: picky eater (loves FreshPet food though), loves walks, doesn't shed, needs to wear a harness as he can slip out of a collar, not a fan of big dogs on walks, not into toys or bones, sleeps great in a crate, and loves being outside.”

Cocoa Bean was rescued by a good sam in January of 2019 when he noticed a little wet dog with very matted coat limping and dragging his left hind leg. He stopped the car, picked him up, and took him to the nearest veterinary clinic. Xrays showed a fractured hind leg and the good sam took him to a vet for surgery and medical care. Fast forward a year and he requested help with his adoption since he was not able to find a home himself in Mexico for fear Cocoa Bean would end up in a home that would again allow him to roam the streets of Ensenada. He contacted ARWOB for help and Cocoa Bean is new to the group. Cocoa is healthy and will have a slight limp on his back leg as they had placed a metal plate in his leg to fix the fracture. He can still run around and walk, but he will not be a great exercise partner as he shouldn't be a hiking or running partner; he will be happy to walk neighborhoods and run around a yard or patio with his friends. He is fantastic with children, dogs and cats. 

He can be adopted or fostered to adopt. In either case, an adoption application should be submitted and he will need a foster as soon as 4/29.

To apply to foster to adopt or adopt please submit an adoption application online at arwob.org
