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 Buttercup!

UPDATE 1/17/23:

Buttercup was adopted by two different adopters, who were really not ready to take on the responsiblity of a new puppy (she was first adopted in December 2022 and the 2nd time in January 2023).  She is coming back to ARWOB this week and we need to find her a foster family asap!  This pup is sweet, smart, and loving.  She has come back to us twice, through no fault of her own! 

We really need to find a foster family asap, or better yet a permanent adopter!

Original Nnotes from her foster family prior to adoption:

"Buttercup has really become such an amazingly sweet pup. She is more timid than her sister Butternut. She’s also a bit smaller than her sister. She loves to play and wrestle with her sis and she loves to cuddle and get kisses from her humans too. She adores my children and loves to chase them around the yard. Buttercup has such a chill, low-key personality that anyone would fall in love with. Buttercup is still working on potty training, but she is crate trained. She would make a wonderfully loving addition to any family."

Original Rescue Story:

Buttercup and Butternut are the sweetest and cutest little sisters who were rescued from Ensenada Mexico when only a month old. As of 11/28/22 they are 13-15 pounds and we believe will grow up to be a mes-large breed to possibly reach 50-65 pounds when full grown. They are quarantined, just finished with their full set of puppy vaccines and up to date on all medical. These girls have been spayed and recovered beautifully from their surgeries and now ready. They are currently fostered together along with a couple of other ARWOB foster pups with a loving foster family in a home setting that consists of 2 adults, 2 young boys (7-9yr) as well as large dogs. These girls are very social, loving and would love  family who is ready to for puppy training from puppy training, house training etc. 

The girls are crate trained and do not need to be adopted together but they would love a family with a dog at home OR who will keep them socialized wirh other dogs and playtimes.

Don't wait to schedule a meet and greet and submit and adoption application online TODAY at ARWOB.org to get one of this girls home. 

*We don't place holds on rescues. Pls don't submit an application unless you are ready to adopt within 3-7 days of submitting an application. 
*Applications will be reviewed within 48hrs and contacy you via e-mail to schedule a phone call.
*Please, select your primary and secondary (If interested in someone else as well) and let us know whom you like to meet or if open to meeting couple of dogs to see whom you have a connection with.
