We can't save dogs without foster homes. It's that simple! Since we don't have our own facility, we rely on foster parents to care for our dogs until they are adopted. Foster parents help us learn more about a dog's behavior, training level and personality so that we can match them with the right forever home.
We request that you commit to a minimum of two weeks but prefer if you can foster the dog up to the point of adoption. This time period varies from dog to dog but averages about two months.
What Does a Foster Do?
As a foster parent, you provide a home, food, bed and TLC. We ask that you bring your foster dog to at least two adoption events per month. CDR pays for all vetting and provides basic supplies including a collar, harness, leash and crate. Your foster dog provides lots of love, tail wags and wet kisses!

"Fostering a dog has been the greatest thing I've done. Thanks City Dogs Rescue for allowing me to be a temporary mom to your sweet dogs!"
