Each year, approximately 1.2 million dogs are euthanized in the United States. Every day, simply providing short-term shelter, food, and love could save thousands of dogs. Ruff Tales Rescue is trying to decrease these numbers, but we need your help!

RTR relies on our foster families, as they are the backbone of our work. Our foster families open their homes and their hearts to dogs in need until they are adopted. Fostering can last a few weeks to several months. As we do not have a shelter, we need foster families to save more dogs!

If you are interested in fostering, or if you would like more information, you can email our Foster Manager at or you can fill out an application online at - thank you!
