Available for Foster

Animal Friends Rescue Project does not own a kennel facility and relies on foster homes to care for the majority of dogs and cats in our care. Our foster volunteers are true heroes that provide a loving home environment for the animals that are waiting to be adopted. The more foster homes we have, the more lives we can save!  AFRP provides all the supplies you will need for your foster dog or cat, and covers all veterinary expenses.

The following dogs and cats need foster homes. If you are already an AFRP volunteer, please contact us and let us know which animal you would like to foster.

If you are not yet an AFRP volunteer, we’d love to have you join us! Once you have filled out a volunteer application and gone through a volunteer orientation and training session, you’ll be ready to foster!

 

Edward-new-web

Edward

Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age: 1 Year
Weight: 90 Pounds
Gender: Male

Edward is a handsome 1-year-old, 90-pound German Shepherd that has recovered from an uncomfortable skin condition. When he came to us from the Hitchcock Road Animal Services, he was itchy, missing large patches of fur and suffered from a painful ear infection. Happily, a combination of a special diet, medication and soothing baths transformed him into the gorgeous dog you see today. Edward (nicknamed Wiley as in Wile E. Coyote) is a friendly, affectionate and easygoing dog that gets along nicely with other dogs and enjoys going for walks and hikes. Highly intelligent, Edward is house trained, well mannered in the house and learns quickly. He will alert you to squirrels and deer, and will likely do best in a home with no cats, rabbits or other small animals. Edward can get a bit anxious and whiny at times, but once he feels safe and secure he is a calm and quiet companion. He can get a bit mouthy when playing, and is not a good fit for a home with young children. He is particularly comfortable with women, but does learn to trust men as well. Edward is looking for an experienced foster volunteer that can help him move forward from a rough past and can continue his training. He is a large, strong dog that needs regular exercise and plenty of daily attention and companionship.
