Becoming a foster home is one of the most amazing ways to contribute to rescue. We talk often about the importance of foster homes for our organization - we have no facility; all our rescued dogs must stay in homes -  but its also important to remember how much joy fostering can bring into your life!

As a foster parent, you will get to experience a change in the life of a dog that is very moving. While many dogs come in in good shape from happy homes due to unfortunate circumstances, many others arrive from puppy mills or the streets in extremely poor health and emotional and mental condition. As a foster owner, you get to help a dog like this bloom, become healthy, and move on to a forever home.


Amber before Amber

                     Amber, when she came to us as a stray caught in a cat trap last year and more recently in her forever home!

Of course, dogs  who come to us from good homes still need families while they search for a new forever home. Either way, there is nothing that matches the feeling of saving a dogs life and then sending him or her off into a wonderful forever home! Plus, the presence of social networks like Facebook help you stay in touch with your foster dog's family long after they leave your home.

We are always looking for foster homes. We are also currently looking for "forever fosters" for some of our senior dogs; this is a great option if you want to adopt but are concerned about the annual costs of medical care for a pet. Please contact us to learn more about fostering, or fill out our foster application form. 

Missy is a special senior girl looking for a home through Lil Paws!

If you are that special person who can give a loving and safe home to a senior dog we would love to hear from you. Our $75 adoption fee for senior dogs 10 years and older is truly a bargain. You give a dog a loving home and the dog becomes your loving companion. Hard to top that.

Senior dogs are special because they still have a lot of love to give. Imagine being a senior and losing your home! Missy had just this happen when her owner went into a nursing home. We try to help turn this tragedy into a happy ending, but we can't do it without adopters. While senior dogs do have a lot of life behind them, small breed dogs still have the potential for many good years ahead of them. Dogs the size we typically adopt out can live well into their teens with proper food and medical care.

Please consider opening your home and your heart to a senior rescue!
