RESCUE CITY INC

Always had a love for dogs? Want to make a difference? Or maybe you can’t adopt right now but still want to help? Over 390,000 dogs are euthanized EVERY year in shelters across the USA, and we need your help in reaching a "No-Kill" Nation! As a foster parent you play a very lifesaving role in helping reach this goal!

When fostering with Rescue City, you are matched with a foster dog based on your current lifestyle, availability, and experience. We cover all veterinary care and provide ongoing support throughout the duration of your foster journey.

What is fostering?

Fostering provides a temporary home for dogs in our rescue while they await their forever homes. We need fosters for all kinds of dogs including puppies, pregnant mamas, shy dogs, and medically needy dogs.

What are you responsibilities?

*Provide a safe, clean, and caring environment

*Provide food, water, enrichment, and shelter

*Provide exercise and socialization

*Monitor physical and mental wellbeing

*Transport to free veterinary visits and to 1x monthly Adoption events

Benefits:

*Saving a dog from risk of euthanasia

*Making a difference

*Having a dog companion without the lifetime commitment

Rescue City is a professional, foster based dog rescue based in Brooklyn, New York. We conduct lifesaving rescue transports from open intake shelters that are unable to save a high percentage of animals. Thanks to our efforts, hundreds of dogs are saved every year.

Rescue City is committed to saving the lives of dogs in need from underserved shelters. Our loving, dedicated foster network helps us provide temporary, safe homes for these dogs while we find fantastic matches that result in permanent adoption placement. We pride ourselves on offering exceptional education and support throughout the process, ensuring a wonderful experience for both the dog and their human.

**Disclaimer: We do require that our fosters be at least 21 years of age and pass veterinary, landlord, interview, and virtual home visit clearances. All family members and/or roommates over the age of 21 must agree to our policies and protocols. Foster caregivers must live near or able to commute to Brooklyn, NY!

Description

Rescue City is a professional, foster based dog rescue based in Brooklyn, New York. We conduct lifesaving rescue transports from open intake shelters that are unable to save a high percentage of animals. Thanks to our efforts, hundreds of dogs are saved every year.

As a registered 501c3 non-profit 1, we mostly rely on tax deductible donations to fund our lifesaving transport operations, veterinary costs, and support of our fosters. Every dog we care for is fully vetted and altered, microchipped, and vaccinated prior to adoption. We are proud that our organization rescues dogs of every breed, size, age, temperament, and medical condition.

Rescue City is tremendously appreciative of our community of loving fosters, dedicated volunteers, generous donors, and devoted adopters who help us do our incredibly important work. Our commitment to our dogs goes beyond the adoption process. Through our exceptional education and ongoing support network, we believe that, together we can positively change the face of dog ownership and empower a community of guardians. #ItTakesACity #RescueCity
