PLEASE NOTE: Foster parents must be 25 or older and reside in Southern California Wagging Dog Rescue is in need of qualified fosters to add to our wonderful family!
Fosters are the backbone of our rescue and a vital part of our ability to save lives! Fostering isn't a lifetime commitment, it's a commitment to save a life.
We are not breed specific. We try to focus on dogs who will not make it out of our local shelters if we don’t step in. We believe very wholeheartedly in the value of foster homes. We want all of our rescued dogs to spend some time recovering and blossoming in one of our valuable foster homes before moving on to a well matched forever family. We make every effort to place a dog with a foster family who is a good fit for your household and lifestyle. We provide all vetting, a crate and basic supplies.
We ask our fosters to provide good quality dry kibble and to maintain flea/tick prevention. (These expenses may be a tax write-off for you as well; please consult with your accountant). We will search for a deserving adopter for your foster dog, and we invite you to be as involved in that process as you wish to be. We've had many amazing successes, and we have a group of amazing pet parents in our WDR Alum!
