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.

Beto's new mom sent us this wonderful update.  He clearly has mastered the art of napping!

"He is doing so well! He is up to 60 pounds now and adjusting nicely. We have a lot of dogs in the neighborhood and he has already made so many friends. He still loves playing fetch more than anything and he starts training today! Below is a photo of one of his naps. Just wanted you both to know how he’s doing and that we love him so much!"


Lupin (fka Mack) is doing great in his new adoptive home!  He was adopted earlier this month (June 2020) and here is what his adoptive mom has to say:

"It’s going SO WELL!!! He’s adjusting super quickly, he’s so smart, and according to Dr. Cardeiro he’s a healthy weight now! He officially knows “sit”, “come” and “in-in” to go into his crate. We’re now working on “stay” and “lay down.” He’s getting pretty good with house training! Accidents only happened the first three days. We’re 6 days accident free now :) He’s definitely teething, but we’re keeping him occupied with puppy ropes, Kong’s, and puppy teething treats. No destroyed personal property, yet... His ears have started to relax down, and are no longer sticking straight up. They only do that when he’s on alert now, haha. Also he just learned that he can go up and down the stairs by himself (the first week they were a little scary for him), and he and Lily our cat are getting along pretty well. Lily “tolerates” him, and he LOVES her Hahahaha. We’re very thankful for him, he’s brought nothing but joy to our lives."


Nena was adopted in April 2018 and her adoptive mom shared this wonderful "pupdate" with us.  As you can see from one of the photos, Nena is getting along quite well with her canine siblings!

"This little dog is amazing! She is a beacon of light!  I have 3 other rescue dogs and she by far has one of the largest personalities. Playful and crazy fun."


We were thrilled to get this lovely photo of Lucy from her adoptive mom.  She was adopted from ARWOB in March 2019.


Check out this amazing photo of Kona (fka Osita), who was adopted from ARWOB in May 2020.  She looks very happy and healthy in her new home!
