Foster homes needed for dogs

Save to Favorites

A Reason To Believe Animal Rescue, Inc. (ARTBAR)


ARTBAR is seeking volunteers who can foster dogs indoors. Any current pets in your home must be vaccinated and spayed or neutered. If you meet our criteria for fostering but your pets aren't fully vetted yet, there is a possibility we may be able to fund raise to help with that. All of your pets must be indoor pets, not living outdoors 24/7.

For our fosters, we supply food and cover veterinary expenses. Your role is to help the dogs adapt to indoor living, start working on housebreaking and crate training, and just generally love and care for them until we find placement for them. Fostering time can vary from a week or two up to several months per dog, depending on the condition they are in when they are accepted to our rescue.

If you can foster for us, please go to this page and submit our Foster Application.

Mission Statement

The mission of A Reason To Believe Animal Rescue is to rescue homeless or neglected domestic animals (including but not necessarily limited to dogs and cats), provide veterinary care, and get them placed them in great adoptive homes. All are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. We house these animals in foster homes, kennels, or boarding as needed. We work in collaboration with shelters, veterinarians, rescues, owners needing to rehome their pets, and the public. We work to reduce the animal overpopulation issue by spaying and neutering as part of our process. We work to ensure the safety of the public by vaccinating according to the law and as the health of the animal permits based on the recommendations of our veterinarian. We treat for parasites, injuries, dentals, skin or ear infections. etc.


ARTBAR is a domestic pet rescue located in rural southwestern West Virginia. We mostly rescue dogs but occasionally help other domestic pets.



We'll work with your schedule.
