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.

We received an amazing update for Harper (fka Panda):

"Harper is known by many names including Harper, Harper May, harps, harpsichord, harpsicle, and stop annoying your brother. She loves her brother, Dante, and loves any and all attention she can get from humans. Harper loves to be outside when it’s cold and warm. She loves fresh snow to play in and long walks. She is a super happy dog, and we all love her."


We received this absolutely AMAZING update about Kobe (fka Joey)!!

I just wanted to send you an email update about Joey, who we actually renamed him to Kobe. He is doing AWESOME! Andrew and I have been forever changed by this dog and we love him so much - he really fits in with us perfectly. I just took him into get his last round of puppy vaccinations at Banfield today and he did super well, they said he was a good patient. I could tell he was eager to get home when we were checking out. Our cat, Chica, has been warming up to him day by day and he is learning that Chica likes to be left alone most of the time. She doesn't really engage with him that much, so he doesn't pay too much attention to her and that's okay. She is happy that she has the human bed to herself and she still comes around to get pets and cuddles every day, no matter where Kobe is in the house. Kobe is in his crate every night and has done SUPER well, thank you for the crate training. He learned how to use the dog door and is becoming more independent with going out for potty breaks on the pet turf each day. I take him out every hour or couple of hours when I need to take a screen break from work. Kobe has a passion for soccer, like me. We have all played so much together and he's quite the defender. He loves rope toys and anything that squeaks as I'm sure you know. We honestly can't thank you and ARWOB enough for taking care of Kobe and letting us adopt him - he is literally the best part of my day. I just took this picture this AM, so you can see how much he's grown. If you want another update in a few months, I am happy to send one along. Thank you so much and God Bless!!


We received this wonderful update about Topher (fka Topper):

Topher is the absolutely best dog ever we are so in love with him! We take him every where and he is so loved. He is about 35-40 pounds now. We did not take him to dog training yet, however we are thinking doing that soon.


A beautiful update from our Facebook page:

"This is Cheddar (formerly Indigo), who was adopted as a kitten in August of 2013. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him and am eternally grateful to ARWOB for saving his life, as well as those of his mother and 5 siblings. Nothing makes Cheddar happier than receiving tummy rubs and he will plop himself spread eagle wherever he thinks someone will give him those rubs he adores!"


Look at this adorable photo we received of Paco (fka as Happy) all grown up!  Paco enjoys doggie daycare when his mom is at work and is as happy as can be.
