for the rescue
Millions of dogs enter shelters every year or are abandoned on the streets by their inhumane owners. Unfortunately, a horrifying amount of them will be euthanized. As a rescue, Imagine Peace for Pups doesn’t have a physical shelter so they rely on volunteers to help them save these dogs.
Foster a Rescue Dog
This is one of our biggest volunteer needs
How do I foster a dog?
If you are interested in volunteering by being a foster family, please fill out this online application. Within 24-72 hours, an Imagine Peace for Pups Rescue representative will contact you to further interview you for this important and much needed volunteer position.
Will I be responsible for vet costs as a foster?
Once you are approved as a foster volunteer, you will not be responsible for any vet costs associated with the pup. Prior to placing the dog in your home, they will undergo a mandatory visit with a trusted veterinarian. All dogs will be spayed and neutered, microchipped and given the basic vaccinations. If the rescue has any other pre-existing conditions, those will also be addressed during this initial vet visit.
Can I adopt my foster dog?
Yes! If it is a good match, foster volunteers can of course choose to adopt the pup that they are fostering and provide them with a forever home. They will need to complete a few more additional steps to adopt, which are outlined on the Adoption section of the website.
Majority of the dogs that are rescued come from Central and Southern California where spay and neuter laws are not widely enforced and unspeakable amounts of stray dogs live poorly on the streets resulting in thousands ending up being euthanized. In an effort to save these dogs, Imagine Peace for Pups is looking for volunteers to help transport them via car from California to foster volunteers and forever homes in Oregon and Washington.
