Step 1. Fill out our online foster application. We will then call you to review your application, discuss the fostering process and answer any questions you may have.

Step 2. Please email us with your availability dates and timeline (how long you can foster for) to foster. We can only save as many dogs as we have fosters so emailing us on a regular basis allows us to save more lives.

Step 3. As soon as we have a dog that needs a foster that fits your availability, we will email you a photo and a brief description of the dog’s personality and/or if it has any medical issues that would require extra attention. Upon receiving the email, please send a text or email confirmation that you would like to foster the dog. We will then arrange transport immediately.

Step 4. When you receive your foster dog you will also get a few supplies needed (we have crates, leash, collar, toys, treats, etc.).

*All supplies must be returned to Big Love Animal Rescue when your dog is adopted so that we can continue to use them for future dogs we save. Please do not give them to the adopter.

Big Love Animal Rescue holds adoption events twice a month at Gelson’s Market in Studio City. We ask that all foster dogs attend adoption events in hopes to find them a forever home. We will make arrangements with you to either pick up the dog or, even better, if you can drop him/her off, that’s ideal.
