Foster a Dog in Need

Save to Favorites



Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. By temporarily sharing your home and your heart with a dog in need you are actually saving two dogs! When a foster dog leaves the shelter to go to your home, it opens up a much needed spot for another dog to be taken in.

HASRA provides everything you need to foster a dog. We provide a collar, leash, toys, crate, food, and potty pads if needed. We also provide all vetting care and preventatives. In many cases, you could be the dog’s first chance at experiencing life in a real home that provides regular care and love. Witnessing a foster dog grow in trust and love while under your care is a rewarding and heartwarming experience.

We have several different opportunities for fostering. You could foster a pregnant mom, a litter of puppies, you could help nurse a sick or injured dog back to health, or a single dog. Most commitments are for a short period of time until we can secure a spot for them with a rescue.

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone! Wherever you are in life, a dog will meet you, accept you, and love you for giving them a chance. This is an incredible way to teach children empathy, responsibility, and how to give back to the their community.

Can't foster but want to help? We would love for you to volunteer at our shelter! Contact us today!

Mission Statement

HASRA is a 501c3 non-profit no-kill rescue that works with the community by taking in dogs that would otherwise end up at local overcrowded animal shelters or left homeless. We are devoted to the protection and enhancement of quality of life for animals that have been abandoned, neglected, abused, relinquished or found homeless. Our volunteers work tirelessly to prevent animal cruelty and exploitation.


Anyone who has felt the tenderness of a gentle paw on their knee or the tickle of whiskers on their cheek knows why pets are special creatures. They are comfort, companionship, and camaraderie. Our pets live in the moment, taking us away from our hectic or lonely lives, easing stress, and showering us with unconditional love. These reasons are why HASRA works hard to save the lives of these wonderful companions and needs your help to continue our work. Sadly, North Alabama animal shelters are overwhelmed with animals. These animals need lots of love, care, and attention, which can be hard to provide without volunteers and proper financial support. This can lead to shelters being overrun and some turn to killing those they cannot house.That's why HASRA was formed - Heart of Alabama: Save, Rescue, Adopt. HASRA is committed to continuing our support of North Alabama animal shelters and to help save as many unhoused animals as possible. With the help of our many cooperating rescues, the animals we save become loving companions for humans all over the country. We value the life of every precious animal who comes to us and have always made a concentrated effort to save animals that would otherwise have little to no chance of survival.
