Foster Care Program for Rescues
*Please note: the program is not intended for dog owners who want to work with us directly. You must be going through a rescue already to take advantage of our program. Example: Rescue is full and needs place for the dog to stay until the dog can be re-homed. This program is designed for re-homing dogs to new pet owners not for a temporary assistance till existing owner can come get their dog.
Our program is designed to assist local dog rescue organizations by providing foster care for rescue dogs waiting for a forever home. Just Like Home helps with the coordination of adoption events, visitations and grooming to increase the likelihood of rehoming each dog.
