Want to help Ace of Hearts save lives? Foster a dog, save a life!
One of the best ways you can help Ace of Hearts is volunteering to foster a dog. For each new foster home that opens up, we are able to save the life of another shelter dog on death row. Opening your heart and home to a dog in need can bring you joy and the satisfaction that comes from knowing you’ve made a difference in an animal’s life. Simply put, fostering saves lives!
You provide the love and attention; we provide everything else! We provide you with food, treats, a bed, and any veterinary care the dog may need. (You call us to arrange.)
Interested? Some things to consider:
*Most of the dogs we rescue are between 50 and 90 pounds, so you must be comfortable with large dogs.
* We ask that you are away from home no more than 7 hours a day.
*You will need to transport the dog to/from adoption events at the West Hollywood Petco three Saturdays per month. If you have to miss one OCCASIONALLY, we can arrange alternate transportation.
*We do ask that you have at least some experience with dogs, but you don’t need to have dogs of your own.
*You must be able to commit to fostering for a minimum of two weeks at a time.
*You must be communicative, letting us know what the dog needs as well as general information about the dog’s personality and temperament.
We are also in NEED of dog-savvy people who are able to help maintain and continue TRAINING of some of our foster dogs! Dog training experience is a PLUS, but not necessary!
If you are ready to make a difference and save a life by fostering an Ace Dog, please send an email telling us about your experience with dogs and your current situation, i.e., what hours you work, family pets, etc. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include a phone number where we can reach you!
Fostering a dog can ABSOLUTELY save a life! Ace of Hearts has no shelter and is reliant upon a fostering network to provide temporary homes for our animals. Our dogs are kept in foster homes until they are placed in permanent happy homes of their own. Currently, we have very limited foster resources, and as a result we often have to turn animals in need away because there is no one to foster them.
Foster homes provide the love and shelter while Ace of Hearts pays for the food, and all medical expenses. A foster home is invaluable, because the foster parent gains insight to the dog’s personality to help us better match them with the perfect home.
