DC PAWS Rescue is an ALL volunteer 501c3 rescue, with no facility. So foster homes are the heart and soul or our rescue. We work with high-kill, closed rural shelters where the animals have no chance at getting out without groups like DC PAWS. And we cannot do it with out FOSTERS!

DC PAWS loans fosters crates, leash, collar & ID tag for the animals and handles all for the animals medical needs as well. Fosters are just required to provide, food water and a lot of love and encouragement while their foster animal is looking for their fur-ever home!

We need Dog, Cat, Puppy & Kitten fosters! so let us know what you are interested in!

Fosters do have a once a month event attendance requrement, and accessability to a car is important for the success of a foster home.

If you are interested in fostering with DC PAWS visit for more information and to fill out a foster questionnaire!
