Foster Homes Urgently Needed!
PUP is in urgent need of loving, caring, and committed foster homes. The shelters are full and many of these great little dogs won't get the chance to find a home without a foster.
As a PUP foster, you would care for and socialize the dog while that dog's ideal, permanent home is found. You may also be involved in some of the transport functions (e.g., vet, groomer, training facility), if available as well as the adoption process if you prefer. PUP pays for all approved food, accessories, and vetting expenses. The average length of stay for dogs in our foster program is 4-5 weeks.
We are a non-profit, small/toy breed dog rescue service organization. We work locally and nationally with shelters, other dog rescue organizations, and individuals, to help these wonderful dogs. Some of the dogs may never have had a kind word spoken to them, a gentle gesture shown to them, a healthy meal given to them, or a visit to a vet to find out what was wrong with them. We need you and our dogs need you!
Without our foster homes we cannot save dogs. We do not have a facility; we are solely a foster home program. Our foster volunteers are truly the backbone of PUP. Their participation is critical and very much appreciated.
Why become a PUP foster? Because you love dogs and would like to surround yourself with other people who share the same passion. PUP fosters and their families are an amazing group of people and we are so grateful for each and every one of them!

People United for Pets (PUP) is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization specializing in small and toy breed dog rescue. We are located in Western Washington State. Our passion is to bring people and pets together. Countless dogs are without homes and in need of assistance. These are dogs who would make wonderful and faithful companions if only they could connect with the right person or family. We have made it our mission to help them do this. At the same time we hope to enrich the lives of those who adopt them.
We strive to match our dog's needs and personality to the preferences and requirements of each potential adopter. We believe this is a crucial component of the process and will help ensure a life-long relationship.
Our primary focus is on small purebred or mixed breed dogs, although we do occasionally take in larger dogs. We work collaboratively with shelters, other rescue groups, and individuals, both locally and nationally.
We have no central facility. Our dogs are placed in foster homes around the greater Puget Sound area where they receive socialization and training while they await adoption.
We'll work with your schedule.
