Become a Foster, Today!

We are currently looking for new and experienced fosters to take on either puppies, adult dogs or litters!

Saskatoon Dog Rescue operates entirely through the support of our network of volunteer foster homes. This means that we don't have a shelter or one main physical location, and only have capacity to save dogs that we have open foster homes for. We are ALWAYS in need of new fosters, whether you have experience or not, we'd love to have you!

Foster homes provide love, patience, and a much-needed safe haven to the dogs in our care. Our fosters also work on basic training with our pups and ensure they stay happy and healthy!
