Almost Home Rescue is continuously looking for caring and devoted individuals to provide foster homes for animals in need. Sometimes dogs that come out the shelter are too young, too sick, or not socialized enough to be adopted out when we are contacted about a dog in need. In other instances, a foster home is a safe placed where we can learn about a dog’s true personality while they get acclimated to living in a home. To increase these animals’ chances of adoption, they must be placed into foster care where they can receive the one-on-one attention that they need.

Fostering a shelter animal is a wonderful and rewarding experience, but requires time and dedication. Although previous fostering experience is not required, the ideal foster parent will have basic knowledge of animal care and be committed to helping find their foster animals a safe and loving ‘forever’ home. To become an approved foster home please complete an application.


As a foster for AHR, you are not financially responsible for any medical expenses or training costs.  We can provide dog food and supplies for the period of time that our dog is in your care, if needed.  All you are required to do is provide a safe and secure environment along with daily care for your foster dog.  Some dogs will need beyond the basics for training. We will customize a training plan that matches your schedule and sets up your foster dog for success, at no cost to you, of course!
