Rescue Ranch began its foster care program in October 2015. Our vision is that the Foster Dog and Puppy Program plays an integral part in our ability to find loving homes for rescue dogs and help Siskiyou County remain a county that is a positive place for dogs and their people.
The Foster Program Coordinator determines which dogs are most in need of foster care. As an approved foster parent, you’ll receive emails from the Foster Program Coordinator providing a brief description of those dogs most in need of the care provided in a foster home. When you see a dog that might be a good match for your household and lifestyle, you simply contact Rescue Ranch and the fostering process will begin. Rescue Ranch will provide you with all the necessary supplies and medical support for your foster dog, support you throughout the entire process until your foster finds their new family, and will be available to address any questions or concerns.
Dogs needing foster homes
- Neglected or abused dogs that need tender loving care. Injured dogs and/or those recovering from surgery.
- Dogs suffering from “shelter stress” in need of a calming home environment.
- Older or senior dogs that will be more comfortable in a home environment.
- Puppies and young dogs require more socialization than available at the shelter. Puppies too young and/or immature to be adopted.
- Abandoned mothers with litters of puppies.
- Any dog when the shelter becomes overcrowded
