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.

Dog and Cat adoption Event! We only hold one adoption a month. Perfect time to meet all the attending dogs and cats without having to submit an application in order to meet them, you can just stop by and meet them in person. Go home, submit an application and we can follow up as soon as later that same day and adopt as soon as the next day! If you like to attend the event AND adopt on the same day we recommend you submit an application for review NO LATER than Thursday evening 8/11/22 to have enough time for a volunteer to contact you and start the adoption process. Don't know WHO you like to adopt? NO PROBLEM! You just stubmit an application for a dog or cat and let us know on the comments you choose that particular dog or cat BUT are open to adopt anyone you meet at the event and have a connection with. Once you submit an application for ANY dog or cat you don't have to resubmit another application later on. For example you submit for X rescue but when you met you had a better connection and would like to adopt Y rescue instead, NO PROBLEM! As long as the application is approved and there is no other applicant ahead of you. Click our adoption attendace to see the dogs and cats attending. If there is a dog/cat you'd like to meet but see they are not attending please submit the application for it so we can review and contact you and we will make sure to have that rescue attend as well. Are you interested in trying it out before finalizing an adoption? NO PROBLEM! You need to submit the ADOPTION application and just make sure to let us know on your application you are interested in fostering the dog/cat FIRST before adopting to make sure you are a good match. This is what we call our "Foster to adopt trial" FTA FTAs are not typically approved for kittens and puppies but at this time we have so many rescues that we are happy to open this program to any of our rescues. Do know that if we have adopters interested in the same dog/cat you are interested in we do give priorities to adopters. If you'd like to ONLY FOSTER with no intent to adopt, please submit our foster application. We recommend future fosters attend the events towards the end probably the last 30-60min of the event to meet all the dogs/cats who were not adopted and in need of fosters. We are in desperate need of fosters so we hope we see you there!

Stop by to meet some of our dog and cats available for adoption and many of them are in need of fosters too! We require potential adopters and fosters interested in our rescues to: Submit an ADOPTION application online for a dog or cat IF: you are looking to adopt OR you are looking to Foster to Adopt trial. If applicants are looking to ONLY foster with no intend to adopt, the Foster Application is needed. Once we receive an application online we need to schedule a phone call follow up to finish the interview process (typically 10-15min) this will help us determine if we can approve an application to move fwd. Adoptions or starting fostering a rescue are typically the same day of the meet and greet if approved.

Looking to adopt or foster a dog? Perhaps doing a foster to adopt trial (FTA) if you answer yes to any of these questions then please STOP BY this amazing event. If you can't find the right match for you and your family through our organization then we KNOW you will be able to find it through another amazing rescue group attending. About 20 RESCUE grousp attentin, how cool is that?! Do know, if you are looking to adopt the day of the event and go home with a new family member we HIGHLY recommend you submit an adoption application days ahead of the event to give volunteers time to review and follow up with you. The adoption process can be fast or slow. If you are a renter and already have landlord written approval then the process can be faster, if you don't have a problem with home checks in a form of a video, it simplifies the process. So, we can go as fast as applicants are ready but the biggest factor is scheduling a phone interview once a volunteer has reviewed your application for a 10-15min phone interview to make sure we can approve an application for adoption. Not all rescues are matched for all applicants. Adoptions are also based on how the meet and greets go. Meets can be scheduled BEFORE events as well but if the meet and greet is during an event and it doesn't go well and you realize you have a better connection with another rescue dog under our care you are more than welcome to transfer that application to him/her as long as another applicant is not ahead of you in their interest for that dog. We do NOT place holds on rescues and recommend you ONLY submit an application to adopt when you feel ready to adopt. We do give priority to adopters ahead of fosters or foster to adopt trials. BUT if there is NO interest for adoption for the dog you are inquiring about then you are more than welcome to foster to adopt trial with him/her which on average can be 1-2 weeks to get to know that rescue dog. The holidays are coming and if we haven't found forever homes towards the end of the event or after the event then please make sure to request Foster to adopt trials OR to foster ONLY a dog especially if you are not ready to adopt but would love a companion to care for while it finds its forever home. ALL our dogs are sterilized (some may be pending but are already prescheduled appointments and their surgery is included with the adoption fee) all our rescues are microchipped, vaccinated and UTD on any medical they have needed. Adoption fees can be found on each individual bioagraphy. We hope to see you at the event BUT if you are afraid to miss out on an adoption don't wait! Submit an application ASAP and we can schedule a meet and greet in the 92117 area. WE DO NOT SCHEDULE MEETS FRIDAY BEFORE THE EVENT THANK YOU

National Adoption Weekend- Cat ONLY adoption event
Saturday November 12th, 2022 11:00 AM until 02:00 PM
Location: PetSmart in Clairemont (858) 300-6501

If you are looking to adopt or foster to adopt OR foster a feline friend, then come on down to our CAT ONLY adoption event! Held inside the Petsmart store on 4253 Genesee Ave 92117 We will have 20 plus kitties on site. Meet the feline residents of our Cat Adoption Center (CAC) which is the room inside the Petsmart where we have kitties available for adoption residing for typically a 2 month rotation (we have a new batch of kitties as of 10/20/22) AND if they are not adopted by 12/20/22 we will be in need of a foster family for them to spend the holidays or until adopted which can be a couple of weeks or couple months. We will also have feline rescues who are living in foster homes to attend this event. Some foster parents will be on site to help answer questions you may have. We give priority to Adopters, secondary would be foster to adopt trials (FTA) families and lastly of course for foster ONLY homes. We do NOT place holds on rescues. If you are looking to adopt a cat we recommend you submit an application ahead of the event for a volunteer to have plenty of time to review and communicate with you (typically schedule a phone interview) to make sure your application has been processed and is APPROVED for adoption. Once you are approved it makes the process pretty simple as its just about stopping by the event and meet the kitties. Applicants have priority to adopt the kitty they apply for HOWEVER if the kitty you apply for is not well matched or you meet with it and don't have a connection, you are welcome to meet the others to see if you find the right companion for you. We do same adoptions ONLY when applicants have been approved and is unlikely you can be approved to adopt by just submitting an application onsite,, we can start the process but you likely would need to come back to finalize an adoption so if time is not a factor for you, then we recommend to just stop by and meet the kitties and if you like someone then go home and submit an application to adopt. If time is a factor then we recommend you submit ahead of the scheduled event. Our process is simple but we will make sure we advocate for our rescues before sending them to a new home. If home checks, landlord approvals and interviews are too much of a inconvenience then we recommend you stop by our local san diego shelters like the San Diego Humane society to meet your new family members. Most of our rescues have been with us for weeks or months so we know them well We know who would be ok with dogs or other cats or children. ALL our cats are sterilized, microchipped, vaccinated (most fully and done with the series), tested for Felv and Fiv and are negative. If any of our feline friends are positive for it, you will know by checking their biography. Their adoption fees are also found on each kitties biography. We hope you can stop by and meet them to help us get them either to FOREVER homes or TEMPORARY foster homes for the Holidays :)

Looking to adopt a dog or a cat? Excellent! Stop by to meet our rescues attending. Dogs will be outside the store Cats will be Inside the store We will have foster dogs attending as well as foster cats AND of course you will be able to meet the resident cats of our Cat Adoption Center (CAC) which is found inside the Petsmart store. IF you'd like to meet and adopt the same day we highly recommend to submit an application online ASAP to give volunteers enough time to review your applications, schedule a phone interview and go through the adoption process so applicants can come prepared to the event. The only thing left would be for you to come down and meet them animal(s) you are interested in and if the meet goes well and would like to adopt then could do so the same day (assuming approved to adopt) - IF you apply for someone but have a better connection with a different rescue dog or cat you are welcome to transfer the application to that other dog/cat which of course its assuming there isn't an applicant already ahead of you for that rescue dog/cat. IF you prefer to just stop by the event to meet the rescues and see if you have a connection with anyone, that works too! You can then go home and at your leisure submit an application online however, do know, we do NOT place holds on rescues. Please, only submit applications to adopt if you will be ready to adopt right away or within a week of submission, otherwise we recommend applying when getting closer to the time you would be ready to adopt. Adoption process: Submit application, schedule phone interview, if approved we will need a checklist of items to be collected by the applicant to have ready and with them the day of the meet and greet ei landlord approval etc in order to adopt. All our rescues are sterilized, microchipped, have received vaccines/dewormings/flea prevention and any other necessary diagnostics needed (if applicable)in some cases fecals, blood work, heartworm/tick born disease testing, etc. You can find adoption fees on the biographies of each rescue.

Easy peasy event. Pack hike or walks are just a day where casa de ARWOB doggies get to have an outting and exercise/socialize and be on leash while doing so. Pack hike days primary focus is on a easy peasy day that goes to the dogs so they can Just enjoy a day of fun! Second purpose so anyone who has been “eye balling” one of our doggos can just stop by and meet them before hike starts (830-9am) or after the hike ends (typically 10-10:30am) OR if you’d like to get your steps IN for the day volunteer and be a handler during the pack hike/walk . It’s an excellent way to spend some one on one time with the dog you are interested in adopting or fostering and in the same way meet them rest of the dogs, maybe the dog you’ve been eye balling is not the best for you and you like a different doggo while you meet them. You don’t need to apply to adopt before this event since it’s NOT a day you Can go home with a dog you can just meet them And go home and submit an application if you’d like to move fwd. It’s also a great day to schedule meet and greets with potential adopters/fosters who file applications ahead of time and go through the process to be approved and then meet up early Saturday morning to meet and possibly go home with their new foster or adoptee …. So it’s a win/win for everyone :) Please, it really helps if you can email or text (Alondra) to let us know if you are planning on stopping by to meet X dog to make sure we know. Thanks! 6199773593 Animalrescuers@sbcglobal.net
