Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster with Saving Paws Rescue Arizona! Without our fosters, we would not be able to save nearly as many lives (to date, we’ve been able to rescue more than 1,000 dogs). Below we’ve listed important information about being a foster with us, followed by our online foster application. In order to provide foster care for us, you must also read and be prepared to sign the SPR Foster Agreement.

Once your foster application has been submitted please be patient as all staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses; many juggle family and full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws Rescue. As a result, it may take up to 5 days to process an application. Thank you!

Effective January 8, 2024: We are currently only accepting applications for fosters who are able to foster for puppies 6 months of age or younger.

We anticipate this to be a brief limitation on new fosters as fosters help us save lives. If you are applying to be a puppy foster, please indicate your desire to be a puppy foster in the comments section.  Applications for older dogs will be held and you will be contacted when we have adult dogs for placement.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

FAQs about fostering

IMPORTANT: Saving Paws Rescue is a 100% volunteer organization. We try to work as fast as we can, but due to the high volume of inquiries and contact, it may take up to 7 days before we can respond after an application is submitted. We thank you for your patience.
