Become a Foster

Fostering a Golden

Thank you for your interest in fostering a Golden Retriever. We are grateful for people with hearts large enough to help a dog that needs a loving home.

Each dog comes to us under unique circumstances and has individual needs. In addition, each family also has individual circumstances which are taken into account when placing a dog in a foster home. If you are a family with children younger than seven years old, please know our emphasis is on safety. We are very careful about the dogs we will place into families with young children.

Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue works very hard to find the right forever home for each rescue Golden in our care. It is a process that can vary from a few weeks to several months depending on the circumstances of each dog therefore we do not know how long a foster dog will be in your care. You will be supported by a team of foster families and volunteers with the dog’s representative guiding you through the process.

If you are ready to move forward with the process complete this online application. After your application is received, a volunteer will be in touch with you to schedule an in-home interview to discuss the foster program in depth.

Thank You for your interest in opening your home and heart to a rescue Golden. We look forward to working with you.
