About Us

Rover Rescue is a network of volunteer foster homes. We do not have a central shelter.  There is no application to complete.  All you need to do to meet a dog is to contact the person listed at the end of the dog’s biography which is usually the foster home.  This person will help you decide if the dog would be a good match for your family and if so then set up a time for your family to meet the dog.

Foster Program

Interested in providing a loving home for dogs waiting for adoption? All vetting and supplies are covered by Rover Rescue. You provide the time and care.

If you'd like to learn more about fostering and how to start the process, check out the Fostering FAQs.


Rover Rescue is always in need of certain items. If you'd like to donate something, check out our wish list or have things automatically shipped to Rover Rescue from our Amazon wishlist.
