We are in desperate need of foster homes for adoptable dogs or a litter of puppies and are looking for new volunteers.
We were able to save new dogs every two weeks, but we can only continue to help if we have dedicated foster homes to house them.
Spark Rescue is a foster home rescue and everyone who opens their home to a dog is a lifeline!
Sadly, every year millions of pets are killed in our nation’s shelter system. These shelters are full of loving animals looking for a second chance. Spark Rescue’s mission is to get as many of these animals as safe as possible and place them in loving homes. The number of foster homes available determines the number of dogs that can be rescued.
Until these animals are placed in homes forever, they need a safe place to recover from their previous lives of abandonment, neglect and / or abuse and injury. This safe haven, where a lonely and frightened dog or cat can heal their broken heart and relearn to trust humans, makes all the difference in this animal’s life and is essential in their preparation for adoption.
Your observations and daily life experiences with your pet provide us with vital information that allows us to assess potential adopters and choose the best fit. And of course, you’ll be the first to hear that he / she has a happy home!
Once you have decided what you want to host, together we will select a dog or cat that will suit your home and your lifestyle. We have short and long term hospitality opportunities available. Our rescues are usually placed in permanent homes within 1-4 weeks. If this time commitment seems too long, we also need replacement host families for our regular host families who need time off. These engagements usually only last a few days. All you need is your home and a loving heart!
We also offer a Host program to adopt for people who want to adopt, but want to “sniff” “the dog they are considering adopting, and our foster program for one-time or continuous placement.
