URGENT -- Dog Fosters Needed

Save to Favorites

Volunteers in Defense of Animals

  • 5 people are interested

Hello! We're a rescue that works hard to place animals from our local LA communities and also some dogs from the streets of Mexico. We are in urgent need of foster homes for dogs of all sizes and personalities. We will work hard with you to find the best possible match for you home situation and lifestyle. You can absolutely come in and pick a dog too!

Time commitment: We ask that you foster with us for as long as possible (until the dog is adopted), but if you have say a vacation coming up or you can only foster for a period of time, we can work with that! Some people foster for only 2-3 weeks!
After your dog has been adopted, we would love for you to continue fostering with us. If you need a break, by all means take one. Fostering really helps us clear up space at the shelter and take in more dogs to find homes for.

Supplies: We provide all supplies you need. If you need something more, let us know or ask if we have it!

Vet Bills: Dogs are all screened by the vet before going to foster homes. Most dogs will be neutered/spayed before going home, but sometimes some dogs might need more care for a week or so (increase their weight), and you'll need to take them to our vet for their scheduled appointment. But, again, we'll work with you and your schedule.

Shots/Dewormer/Flea Meds: All dogs have their shots, dewormer, and flea meds before going home. If you need more of anything, or if you notice anything wrong with the dog's stool, text us immediately and we'll get it taken care of!

You will not have to pay for anything. Some fosters like to buy supplies for their dogs to use - we aren't able to provide compensation for this unfortunately (we're super low on funding!), but you are welcome to do this if you'd like.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to protect and help dogs and cats from homelessness neglect, abuse, cruelty and abandonment. VIDA does not belong to any one person but instead to all of its volunteers. We adopt out about 4-5 dogs and cats each week and rescue dogs from high-kill shelters, low income neighborhoods, and even dogs from Mexico. We also have spay and neuter operations and have saved thousands of animals already.


Volunteers in Defense of Animals is a non-profit organization working to end the suffering and mistreatment of dogs and cats in Southern California. We bring spay and neuter services to areas where families cannot afford them; we facilitate the rescue, foster care, and adoption of animals whenever possible, and we offer education and support to those involved in the care of animals.

We have found forever homes for hundreds of dogs and cats, with around 4-5 new adoptions taking place each week. Many of our dogs come from local high-kill shelters before they are euthanized and on the streets of both the US and Mexico. We also have spay/neuter operations in low-income neighborhoods in the US and in Mexico and have spayed/neutered thousands of pets.


We'll work with your schedule.
