Foster Coordinator

TAP Logo

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, CA that focuses on saving dogs from the streets of Mexico and high kill shelters. We get them the vet care they need, place them in foster homes and then find them loving forever families. Our mission is to form a safe space for dogs experiencing crisis and neglect, and to build a community of compassion through education, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption. Our community of volunteers and fosters strives to ensure that all dogs get a fighting chance, and believes that no case is too extreme to be helped - meaning our rescue is full of perfectly imperfect dogs who can’t wait to meet you! Being operated solely by volunteers and funded entirely by donations, none of what we do could be possible without our dedicated team!


Here at TAP, we give voice to the voiceless and our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find them the best homes possible. Founded in 2010, The Animal Pad is volunteer run and funded entirely by donations. 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.
