Loaning an animal your couch can save their life! - Every 16 seconds an animal is euthanized simply due to overpopulation. Shelters do not have unlimited space and unfortunately have to make room. Rescue groups do not have the facilities and rely on fosters to help. Simply by agreeing to foster you can save an animal’s life.

ARF’s German Shepherd Rescue is partnering with Doobert.com, the leading online forum for animal rescues, animal shelters and volunteers, to help get more foster homes for rescue animals.

How it works:

1. Sign up on Doobert.com or use the Facebook plug-in (search for "Doobert Rescue" on Facebook) and build your foster profile for how you can help foster animals. You get to pick the type, duration and tell potential shelters and rescues about your situation. It’s up to you what information you share.

2. We allow approved animal welfare organizations (Shelters and Rescues) to search for volunteers like you, based upon distance and your foster profile. They can see the information you’ve shared and reach out to you if there is a match.

3. You’ll be contacted by them directly and can determine if you are able to help that particular organization with fostering either overnight, short-term or longer-term. It’s up to you whether you help when you’re contacted. You'll get plenty of doggy and kitty kisses and thank you's along the way as the animals know you are there to help them.

And there are many more ways to help volunteer to save animals on Doobert.com. It's simple and we need volunteers across the country - so share with your friends, family, and co-workers and help save an animal today!
