Anchor Paws Rescue is a foster based rescue.  We do not have a shelter, so we rely on foster volunteers to provide a safe, loving home for the dogs while they await their forever homes.  The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can save.

Anchor Paws covers the cost of all necessary veterinary care.   We do ask foster volunteers to provide basic necessities, such as food, collars/harnesses and leashes, but if assistance is needed, we can provide these items through donations.

Some of the dogs will need a little extra help with housebreaking, socialization, or training.  Fostering is such a rewarding experience to watch a scared or shy dog blossom into a happy and beloved family member.

If you would like to provide a temporary home for a dog in need, please complete our foster application.  We conduct reference checks and home visits, and provide orientation and support to new foster volunteers.
