Rescue and Foster
What We Do
ARRF provides supplies (leashes, food, flea medication, etc.) though some fosters supplement with their own supplies/food as a donation to the program.
Veterinary partners provide foster dogs with medical care.
ARRF strives to accommodate dog preferences for fosters when possible.
If a foster dog is not working out, please allow 72 hours for identifying another foster for the dog.
What Fosters Do
Foster dogs are leashed at all times.
We encourage free home access for the dog especially during work hours. Keeping the dog’s life cage free improves their socialization.
If the rescue dog gets lost in your care, please notify us immediately and assist in advertising the loss.
Fosters supplement online dog listings with pictures and descriptions. A great online adoption profile helps the dog find a loving home faster.
Fosters need to be available for one of our monthly adopt-a-pet events. See our website schedule of events.
We do all we can to help end the suffering of lost and/or abandoned
pets in San Diego County.
Would you like to be a foster parent?
ARRF relies on a network of "foster parents" to provide short and long-term care for dogs and cats in their homes. By offering your time, love, and attention, you prepare your foster dog, puppy, cat, or kitten for adoption into a permanent, loving home!
