we are always looking for new foster homes

Thank you for your interest in fostering with us! Being a foster based rescue, we rely on people like you to help our dogs & cats along their journey to their furever homes. 


With fostering, you are provided with the necessities from food, treats, toys, a crate, leash, harness, collar, medications if needed, and anything that they require during their stay with you. Becoming a CHR foster, you provide enrichment, structure, consistent activity, and most importantly, a safe haven to decompress and heal. Our foster team is here to support you along your journey, with a personal Foster Group chat on WhatsApp (please download in your app store). Alternatively, we can always be reached at 


We have dogs with various needs. If you have any "deal breakers" such as toilet training, separation anxiety, leash manners, fear, etc, please let us know. We try and be as transparent as possible when placing our dogs with our foster team to ensure it is the right fit for everyone. 


With the COVID-19 crisis, we want to ensure the safety of everyone on our team. If you, or anyone in your home has traveled in the last 14 days, please let us know upon your application. Please include where you traveled, for how long, and how long you have been in quarantine. 


We realize many people are at home during this time and are looking for ways to help. If you are applying to foster with a commitment of about one month, we will consider your application for dog sitting and short term stays. The dogs that we rescue need an open time frame when fostering, therefore applications with longer commitments will be considered first (average 2-3 months).
