Foster a pet

Fostering saves lives!

With our city and county shelters at full capacity our furry friends get euthanized by the thousands every single day across our nation. But you can do something to help. Welcome a furry foster friend into your home.
Some foster families are just needed for just a day and others for several months. We are happy to work around your availability.

We provide you with a furry friend, food, all the necessities, and you just need to provide a comfortable place to crash, and lots of love and patience.

We ask that you are available to bring your foster pooch to our weekly events as it betters their chances of getting adopted faster.


My name is Teri. I’m a volunteer and the founder of Henry’s Hope. I work full time in health care but do my best to respond quickly.

Thank you so much for reaching out to foster a dog during this challenging time.

Because we’re all trapped like rats in our homes everybody had the same idea and at this point we DON’T have many dogs available for fostering. That could change however. On a moments notice. Because of the nature of reading at risk pets, we may reach out on a moments notice and ask for help. Please respond quickly.

We are trying to save as many as we can from the shelters and desperate situations.

Please be patient with us.

Please remember, we are saving lives. The dogs we get are in need of a TEMPORARY HOME.
Their fur color, etc. should not be a factor in wanting to host a dog for a short period of time.

If you’re open to fostering a small dog, regardless of breed type, or what the dog looks like, and everyone in your household is on board, please read on...

Committed fosters allow us to save the lives of at risk dogs. We ask that you commit to a minimum of 3-4 weeks.
We ask that you communicate with us any specific needs you may have.

Please let us know who you are and how to get back to you and answer the questions below so we can match you with the right furry houseguest when more become available.

IF you need us to we will supply food, a bed, collar with ID tag, leash, poop bags, and some treats. Of course we are a 100% volunteer based non profit and money is right so if you can offer to cover these necessities that’s always a HUGE help.

All dogs have been vaccinated, microchipped and sterilized unless specified.

Please never remove their collar with the ID tag! It is the only way that we can get them back safely if something should happen.

Watch the front door. Your pup may try and slip out! Please use extra caution!

It takes a dog at least three days to decompress in a new situation. Many of them have been at the shelter or homeless scared in the streets and are very overwhelmed. We ask that you exercise caution and patience.

Please give them space and allow them to come to you in their own time. Don’t force them to interact.
It takes a dog approximately three weeks to feel comfortable in a new environment and three months to act like themselves.

We can only save as many dogs as we have committed fosters for. Please give us adequate notice if you feel that your foster doggie isn’t working out.

Since most of these dogs come from the shelter system we do not know if they are housetrained. Please understand that they may soil your home or chew on your things.

It’s a big responsibility taking care of a pet. They can comfort us in times like this. If you are ready to start the process then we thank you and we will try to get you as doggie as soon as possible.

We can always be reached at 310 985-9944.

Thank you for joining our happy rescue!

Enjoy and be safe!
