Foster Coordinator

The Animal Pad all-breed dog rescue is searching for a few more Foster Coordinators to join our incredible Foster team! Because TAP is a foster-based rescue, our network of amazing fosters are truly the lifeline of everything that we do. They are a huge reason that we're able to do the work that we do, so their comfort and satisfaction is a top priority of ours!

We have a large, dedicated team of Foster Coordinators who are each assigned to some of our active fosters, keeping in regular contact with them and making sure that both they and their foster pup are adjusting well. Volunteers in this role must be compassionate and people-oriented, willing to handle multiple fosters at a time, comfortable with providing emotional support to their assigned fosters, have clear communication skills and personal experience with dogs, and have the ability to use Slack as well as check it daily.
Foster Coordinators are our fosters' primary point of contact, and when being assigned to a TAP foster, will: reach out and introduce themselves to their new foster, make sure their fosters have any supplies they may need while fostering (e.g., food, crate, bed, collar/leash, etc.), and answer any questions or concerns that the foster may have. We always want our fosters to feel heard and well supported, so this is a really crucial role!

About The Animal Pad


4620 Avocado Blvd, La Mesa, CA 91941, US

Mission Statement

The Animal Pad is a nonprofit, all-breed dog rescue based in San Diego, California. We are 100% volunteer run and funded solely by donations, and we rescue dogs primarily from the streets of Mexico.


Here at TAP, we give voice to the voiceless and our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find them the best homes possible.

The Animal Pad was founded in 2010 and we are 100% volunteer run and donation based. We rescue dogs primarily off the streets of Mexico, and provide them full medical care and a loving foster home to heal in before they head to their adoptive home. In addition to rescuing, we have an activism arm called TAPACT where we bring the community together to tackle issues that affect dogs in hopes to evoke permanent change.
