Love Dogs? Save a Life and Foster Today!
Please visit the new page to apply.
Quick Overview:If you have experience with dogs and are comfortable with large dogs, sign up to foster a sweet dog from Ace of Hearts!
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: 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! We need your help by providing them a loving home until they're adopted and we'll provide everything else - a bed, food, treats, toys, a leash, and a collar. We are constantly in contact with you to help you! You are not alone in this process. Some of these dogs have never slept on a bed, or been in a home, or even had a ready-for-them meal.
Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities:
Provide a sweet dog with a loving home
Provide transportation to/from the vet as needed
Bring the dog to adoption events every other Saturday at the Petco in West Hollywood
Help facilitate meet and greets so these wonderful dogs find homes!!
Requirements: You must:
Be 21+ (if under 21, then to have parent approval)
Foster for at least 4 weeks - but if you can only do 2, we'll take that too!
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. If you do not we can work with you.
Be comfortable with bigger breeds! We're a bully breed rescue and most of our pups weigh 50-90 pounds. Please do not reply if you can only do small dogs!
Have NO CHILDREN UNDER 10 OR CATS in your home (please do not inquire if you have children or cats. Other dogs are okay!)
Be able to start immediately
Have already discussed this with all landlords/managers/spouses etc. and have their approval

About Ace of Hearts
PO Box 11693 San Vicente Blvd #130, BEVERLY HILLS, CA 90213, US
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
Multiple locations Los Angeles, CA 90049
