|Dedicated to Rescuing Dogs in the Southern California Area and Placing them in Loving Forever Homes
Volunteers and Foster Homes Desperately Needed!
Due to the recent housing crisis, dogs are being abandoned at shelters at record rates as their families are forced to relocate.
The increased cost of living has forced many families to make the difficult decision to surrender their beloved family members.
Those who can help, need to help these healthy, happy dogs find their new forever homes. Can you foster a dog for a few days
or weeks? It's easy, fun and extremely rewarding. A foster home simply provides a warm, loving home for the dogs, and we do
the rest! We find, interview, and accept the family who wishes to adopt your rescued dog. You give us insights into the dogs
personality, which helps us to find the ideal home. We pay for any expenses that you incur.
The Dexter Foundation does not have a brick and mortar kennel facility. Instead, all of our dogs are housed in private foster
homes located throughout Southern California. Without the tremendous generosity and loving care provided by our foster homes,
we could not continue to assist the number of dogs that are turning up in shelters. Foster homes provide our rescue dogs with
a safe, comfortable haven where we can assess their personalities and particular needs and get them the medical care they may
need prior to placing them into a permanent, adoptive home. Please consider volunteering to be a foster home for one of our

The Dexter Foundation....
Committed to helping the forgotten, unwanted dogs who need us the most. We are an all volunteer group dedicated to
rescuing shelter dogs whose time has run out, and assisting owners find homes for the dogs they can no longer keep.
The Adoption Process: Email us an adoption application by cutting and pasting it into an email, attaching it as a PDF
or scanning it into an email. We then schedule a quick and easy home check. We are only adopting out to the Southern
California area. We save new dogs each week, so we often have dogs that we have yet to post online.
Foster Homes Desperately Needed! So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding,
many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by
giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with
lots of love and affection! Email us for info at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a foster parent, you will NOT be
required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster
home is a dog's life saved!
Foster to Adopt Program: An excellent way to see if you're ready for the full time commitment of owning a dog, or
to see if a particular dog fits into your lifestyle and family without any pressure or obligation. This is an easy way to make
a difference! We cover all of the dog's vet expenses while he's a foster.
