Foster or volunteer with us!

Ready to join a rescue that saves the dogs who are overlooked, and heals their mind, body and soul?


Fostering involves bringing one or more of our dogs into your home to love and care for as you would your own dogs. We will support you at every step and provide high-quality vetting and food at a minimum. Your reward: the knowledge that you are making a real difference by saving an underdog!


Volunteering with LAHPSTR takes various forms and includes processing applications, conducting Home Visits, liaising with our veterinarians, coordinating various transports locally and out of state by air or road, website maintenance, record keeping, fundraising, correspondence, developing marketing material, bookkeeping etc. We also welcome volunteer professional accounting and legal assistance. If you have any pertinent non-profit experience, we would love to talk to you about how we can partner.

We provide training when and where appropriate so that you may confidently perform in any volunteer task that you undertake. We look forward to welcoming you on board our team of volunteers!

The application process to foster, volunteer or adopt is identical. Refer to this page for additional information.
