The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We have no office or bldg. All volunteer Home Fosters. We help match the foster dog or cat that will fit in your home and family.
Foster homes help care for rescue dogs & cats as if they were their own. Furry Friends handles vet costs. Foster homes are responsible for caring for the animal, housing and basic training. They need to be able to drive their animals to vet appt. Drive to our weekly Adoption Showcases in Fremont or Mountain View on Saturday's.
Our foster homes provide sanctuary for our rescued animals, so we can only save as many lives as we have foster homes.

Each friendly dog or cat we rescue is first vet checked and vaccinated, groomed, dewormed, spay/neutered and ID Chipped/ID tagged. We try to match the rescue dog or cat (size, age, activity level & personality) to the foster home's enviroment and lifestyle. We provide all the basic supplies, cover any needed vet expenses with our authorized vets, and guidance from our experienced foster counselors and trainers. The dog or cat then gets TLC, basic home training and relaxes at your home until their perfect home finds them via our website or adoption showcases. Home visits are done for every adoption to insure safety and quality loving home for life. We strive for adoption for life, not short term. We look for the best match for the dog or cat so they will be a cherished family member. The foster home parents play an important part in the interview process to insure a match for their foster dog or cat. They are welcome to go on the home visits if they like or want to be trained. Back up "pet-sitting" for the foster animal is also provided. Open your heart and home to a rescued dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Feel the warmth in your heart and know that you are his or her Guardian Angel. Just look into their thankful and happy eyes. Be a HERO!!!!
