Love Dogs? Save a Life and Foster Today!
Quick Overview: Hi Dog Lovers!! Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue is in desperate need of new fosters!! We're an entirely foster-based 501c3 rescue and we rely on fosters to be able to save more dogs!! If you or anyone you know are able to foster, please contact us ASAP.
Mission: Ace of Hearts is a Non-Profit Dog Rescue based in Los Angeles that saves dogs from the shelters, giving them a new chance at life!
Impact: We need loving Fosters to provide temporary homes for rescued dogs while we seek "Furever" homes. Since we rescue from shelters, some dogs may be traumatized so we need people who will make them feel secure, comfortable and confident. It's incredibly gratifying when these shy & fearful dogs gain your trust. And it's just as gratifying to receive unconditional love from confident dogs. You provide loving care & updates on their personalities, we provide everything else (a bed, food, treats, toys, supplies & vet care).
Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities:
Provide a sweet dog with a loving home
Provide transportation to/from the vet as needed
Assist in rehabilitating dogs, giving them a second chance to be adopted
Being accepted into our foster program is an extremely rewarding experience - you get to help rehabilitate dogs that were left to die at the shelter, giving them a second chance to be adopted, our fosters are true heroes!
Requirements: What we need from you:
To be 21+ (if under 21, then to have parent approval)
To foster until the dog is adopted - or at least 2-4 weeks if you can't make that commitment.
To have reliable transportation and be able to bring them to our adoption event in West Hollywood once a month and to a vet of our choice.
We need fosters who ahve experience with dogs and are comfortable with larger dogs! We're a bully breed rescue and most of our pups weigh 50-90 pounds. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY IF YOU CAN ONLY FOSTER SMALL DOGS.
To have NO CHILDREN UNDER 10 OR CATS in your home (please do not inquire if you have children or cats, other dogs are okay!)
To be able to start immediately
To have already discussed this with all landlords/managers/spouses etc. and have their approval, please do not reply if you don't.
Questions? Please reach out to email@example.com! Help us save lives!
Please provide your phone number and personal email so we can contact you! WE WILL NOT RESPOND IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER AND EMAIL.

About Ace of Hearts

We are a 501c-3 dog rescue foundation dedicated to rescuing dogs, the day they are to be euthanized, from various Los Angeles shelters and placing them in loving homes. We do NOT take dogs in ... we rescue only from shelters. The Ace of Hearts Foundation is in memory of "Ace", a wonderful American Bull dog who was rescued from death, and touched the lives of many! (Especially founder Kari Whitman!) We rescue all breeds...and don't discriminate against any!
Love dogs? Looking to help out and make some new friends along the way?
We need Standby Volunteers daily!
Emergency Volunteers/Stand By's
This may seem like the least helpful, but actually our stand-by's always save us & the dogs! We need you!
You give us the days and times you are available and we add you to a list. Then, if something comes up that day- you will be the first one we call. This helps us reach out to volunteers with availability that day instead of calling our entire volunteer list. If there is a day, half a day, or even a few hours you can volunteer to be placed on a "call in case of an emergency" list, let us know! This can be for many different tasks, and almost
always requires some driving. We try very hard to plan things in advance, but if there is a last minute opportunity to save a life, get a dog adopted, or a foster emergency, it helps to have a handful of people we reach out to first!
We are in desperate need of standby volunteers!
Can't help with this but still want to volunteer? We can always use extra hands:
-Long term fosters
-Temp tests for dogs in shelters
-Transporters (taking dogs to appointments/park/foster)
-House check volunteers
