What does it mean to foster?

We are looking for COMMITTED and reliable fosters to help dogs get ready for their forever homes. This will not only help to free up space in our rescue but it means we will also have the opportunity to help more dogs in need of us the most.

What does "committed" mean?: It does not mean that you are committing to the dog for a lifetime. When we say committed, we mean that you will not give up or abandon the dog as soon as or if  a bump in the road arises. We mean that you're willing to work with and through anything that may come along with these rescue dogs. Most commonly these issues are:

  • House training

  • Separation anxiety (because you are the first "family" that have had in a long time, if ever)

  • Crate training

  • Setting Boundaries

  • Confidence Building

  • Leash Walking

  • Socializing

Safety is our #1 priority and are careful to assess each dog medically and behaviorally upon arrival to our rescue. We make sure to place each dog into a foster environment that would be best suitable to your and their needs, for example, if your household has young children or cats, we will be sure to find you a foster dog that is known to be kids and/or cat friendly or if you are not comfortable giving medications if needed, we will be sure to place a dog in your home that is in good health and is not in need of any extra medical care.

And remember, we are here with you EVERY single step of the way, and we are only ONE text away from any questions or concerns you may have regarding your foster dog.

We have seen it all and chances are, WE CAN HELP YOU!



To foster, you MUST live in the following cities:

  • Temecula

  • Murrieta

  • Wildomar

  • Menifee

  • Fallbrook

  • Neighboring areas 

Why do we ask our fosters to be in these areas?

Because we need our dogs to be in foster homes that are close to our trusted vets for their appointments and in case of emergencies.

If you are not sure if you are in an area available for fostering, please feel free to ask and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Our Rescues

At HRAS, we take in dogs of ALL breeds, ages, sizes, and more. 
Some have been victims of abuse or neglect and have not been lucky enough to get the necessary training (both house and obedience) or the socialization, Others could use the extra one-on-one love, and Many more just need a safe place to land.

About Fostering

Being a foster family, you are not fostering a dog that will be a perfect fit for *your* home.
When they come into your home, it is imperative not to expect them to be the "perfect fit".

This is where you come in; to prepare them for their forever homes through:

patience, understanding, and devotion.

After all, they were abandoned by their family, if they had one at all. So they need you to help them through this tough time.
​We are with you through every step of the way but what we need most are foster homes who are fully committed to fostering for an average of 4-6 weeks

(subject to change).

All dogs are assessed before going into foster homes to ensure they will thrive in your household for everybody's safety and comfortability. 

What's Provided

We provide:

  • Food

  • All supplies needed

  • Continuous support and 24/7 text line throughout your foster period

  • We cover their medical expenses. 

All you need to provide is a safe, loving, and understanding foster home until a forever home can be found.

We depend on fosters to provide clear photos, updates, and better personality descriptions of their foster dog so we can continuing sharing and find the best suitable home!
