Check the animal attendance the morning before the event to confirm attendance of a particular rescue. In addition, please check the up-to-date animals attendance list 1 HOUR BEFORE an event to know if the dog or cat you want to meet is still attending.

Also remember to review important event information BEFORE attending.

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.

Looking to adopt or foster a dog? Please, take a look at our animal attendance. Its a special event. All dogs attending have a special adoption event fee of $150! All sterilized, chipped, UTD on vaccines and some depending on medical have had blood work and testing as well. If you choose to take a dog on a 'Foster to adopt' trial the special adoption fee will be honored even if you adopt 1-2 weeks post event. We highly recommend to submit applications online ASAP or no later than 48hrs prior to the adoption event for volunteers to have enough time to contact you BEFORE the event and let you know what items you need to bring to come prepared to the event if you are looking to start fostering or adopting the same day of the event. Submit an ADOPTION application if you have an intent to adopt or foster to adopt trial. Submit a foster application if the intent is SOLELY to foster with no interest to adopt. Foster to adopt trials are perfect to make sure everyone is well matched to each other. Foster to adopt trials are 1-2 weeks long. We do request a minimum of a FULL week commitment and a minimum of 3 day notice for anyone taking a dog home as an adopter, foster or foster to adopt trials to give notice if the doggo needs to come back to the group because things are not working out. However, we know these dogs personalities really well so we will help match the rescue dog to what you are looking for or help answer information if the dog you are interested in is a good potential match or not. You do not need to submit applications before the event as you can do so during the event or even after BUT it sure does help. Once you submit an adoption or foster application you do NOT need to resubmit for others. That application can be used for ANY of the available rescue dogs under our ARWOB care. However, Many of these dogs are fostered with Baja foster parents for lack of San Diego fosters so PLEASE, If you are not ready to adopt or start fostering the SAME day or the next day of the event but until the next weeks to come its completely fine but PLEASE, drive down to at least meet them in person. Submitting an application or just sending us an email helps us know there is someone possibly interested in certain rescue dogs and letting us know you may stop by to meet them. We really hope you make the time to drive down to this event because even if you don't find a match through our rescue group chances are you will through one of the other rescue groups attending.
