Lucky Paws is a foster-based rescue, which means that we have no brick-and- mortar location. We rely on volunteers to open their hearts and homes to a dog in need. If you have never fostered a homeless pet before, you should know that it is a very rewarding experience, and is very much like adding another pet to your home – only this one is temporary. 

We ask every foster family to treat their foster dog as if it is their own, a member of their family. Foster families must provide a loving home (inside the house) with food, water, play and lots of tender loving care. In some cases, your home will be the very first place where this dog will learn what indoor manners are, what a gentle hand and warm bed feels like, and how to be an adoptable companion to a loving family.

You may also be asked to make your foster dog available for adoption events,  and if an adoption application is approved for your foster dog, that you will facilitate a meet-n- greet with the dog and prospective adopter.  You know your foster pet better than anyone and we want your help in finding the perfect placement. 

Lucky Paws will provide you with food, supplies and routine medical care and tracks what care is due and when.
