Short term foster care can be a wonderful experience for humans and Dogos alike. Typical foster commitments last from four to eight weeks and, in some circumstances, up to six months. We'll sign an agreement so the terms are understood up front. Fosters typically provide food, water, and shelter. DC Dogos pays for transportation, training, and all veterinary care. Give us the specifics of what you think you can handle in terms of age, behavior, and time commitment, and we'll match you up with the right foster dog. If you're interested in fostering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do the rest.
All of our rescue Dogos are assigned the "pedigree" of de los Salvadores (of the saviors).
Open Your Home
Dogos coming out of shelters or through owner surrender often need a place to call home, temporarily, until the right adopter can be identified.
Love & Structure
These Dogos are in stressful situations. They crave routine, nutritious food, training, ample exercise and, most of all, the care and love of an intervening human.
These Dogos could not be saved without your help. When your foster time ends, you'll know that you gave your foster Dogo every chance to make it in the world.
